1090 OG is scary. Mine was 1.094.From their website - https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j ... kgbusCotVA
Mrs Tea found this at my local Range store, they also make a white and red version the Rose is Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ÃÂ£19:99.
When she went to pay the shop assistant told her these kits fly off the shelf every time they get a delivery so i was hoping for something better tasting than the price tag would suggest.
You cut along the dotted line which gives access to dry and wet compartments containing the sachets and the juice, the sachets are wine yeast, oak chippings, stabiliser and finings A and B, there is no nutrient sachet which concerned me at the time.
I had no need to worry about the lack of a nutrient as It fermented vigorously for 7 days as the instructions said it would, on the seventh day i took a reading and it was down to 995. (started at 1090)
I degassed added stabiliser and finings A & B which have to be added one hour apart, the instructions say to allow 3 days for clearing.
After 3 days it was crystal clear and ready to be bottled.
The instructions tell you to add 750g of sugar to back sweeten after you have stabilised and degassed it, i decided to leave it dry as Mrs Tea doesn't like sweet wine and i am glad i did it would have been sickly sweet if i had followed the instructions..
I found the wine a little rough when first tasting it but if you leave it a week or more the taste changes and is as described -
I enjoyed this wine so much i am going to start another soon. :cheers:

Excellent. On your say so then will just get some more apple juice for topping up. Going great guns at a bubble every 2 seconds at the mo .To be honest Ithink a supermarket juice wine made from one litre of RGJ and an Apple juice topped up with apple juice after racking is better then the Range rose.
