    I agree, i put the warning above in my first post in the thread, i cannot imagine how sweet it would be with with the extra sugar.

    Thanks for the review chippy. Iv not done a wine in a long while. I'll be doing this one very soon. If you didn't want it dry and a little sweetness do you think 300g would be enough considering what you said about the 750 would have made it sickly sweet if added??????

    I wouldn't describe it as dry even without the extra sugar, if you do you can always add a little bit of sugar to the bottle and give it a good shake just before drinking it.

    If you don't want it so strong add some water to bring it down to your level.

    That would be around 13% ABV which is fairly standard for a kit.

    Chippy my wine is sat in the FV and today is day 8 so according to the instructions this should be ready to degas and add the A and B sachets yesterday however my airlock is showing signs of fermentation but only a buble every once and a while. Do you think this is just C02 and not a sign of fermentation C02

    My last one took 10 days I never take kit instruction times seriously they are always optimistic, do you have a hydrometer?

    Well I'm bottling tomorrow and 2 taster glasses tonight I'm quite happy. As you have said its quite fresh at the beginning and does need some bottle conditioning.

    Interesting read through this until I did a store finder search and realised that there is not a Range within a 'million' miles of me! :(

    Got a WOW forum favourite Rose bubbling nicely though so hoping this will be a good match.

    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.
