    Just bottled this today. Tried a sample and tastes decent. Think this is going to be a very nice wine around Christmas and into the new year. Only did the 6 bottle kit. Ended up with 5 1/2. Now tucked away in a dark place :).

    I would drink the half bottle as that much head space could cause problems if you leave it for 4 months.

    I've made the 30 bottle kit and it's a nice wine for the money but the Kenridge version at about £10 more is worth the extra imo.

    I was looking at that kit too funnily enough . Might stick one on next. Red wines always a winner in our house. Cheers :)

    It's worth topping up the demijohn with water just before you bottle. To ensure you get six bottles. This is so you don't drink it too soon! Then you can boast about six bottles for £11.99 or whatever.
