    Hi all, has anyone tried the above kit? I can't find any reviews for the white versions. Can anyone recommend?
    I believe they're made from dried ingredients rather than concentrated grape juice which is new territory for me.

    Come on guys, someone must have tried this kit?
    18.99 on eBay seems good for a 25-30 bottle kit but I don't want to waste my time if its c***p.

    Looks like you may have to be the forum guinea pig.

    I have made lots of these (Chardonnay type) and they turn out pretty good they are a bit messy to make but using a grain bag for your dried fruit ect makes life a lot easier

    Be interested in how it turns out BUT general opinion and experience suggests you get what you pay for with wine kits.

    I'm not too bothered as long as its drinkable as its the Mrs who drinks it not me. I'm just getting a bit tired of doing 6 bottle kits and 1gallon wows as I can't keep up with demand. I could do a larger wow batch I suppose but fancied trying out a dried fruit version for a change.
    Thanks for your replies!

    Trying something new keeps your interest and it does make a Change with the dried fruit kit which also makes a nice drop of plonk especially if you let it age a bit
    Cheers
