    Just finished this kit - bottled it yesterday. Added too much water by accident so had to make up for it with extra sugar and grape juice added, so not quite the straight kit... alcohol is a bit higher than planned...

    Still a very pleaseant drink and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Very pleased with it.

    Having brewed this kit a little short (25 bottles), the taste is really fruity. Will be brewing another one soon.

    How long did you let it ferment before drinking? Was it the minimum 7 days or longer?

    Cellar 7 kits only give you 26 bottles at best. However, I have tried several more expensive cabernet sauvignon kits and found the results much the same, so now I just stick with this, although I do add oak chips.

    Can you explain this - thought you had to top up to fill any gap at racking stage - do you just leave a 3 L gap for 24 hours ? Asking as I just completed a cellar 7 cabernet sauvingnon and topped it up to the neck of the 5 gallon demijohn.
