Hi I have made the 6 bottle kit and followed the instructions to the letter quite nice but a bit on the sweet side. I then made the 30 bottle kit and after the initial fermentation was finished instead of stabalizing the fermentation I decided to put the Merlot flavour sachet (tastes sweet) in the FV and let the yeasties have another go, I let this ferment out for a few more days until the SG was below 998 then I used the stabilizer sachet and finings as per instructions. Tastes much better in my OP. I will do this one again. 7 days is not realistic in my opinion.
