The kit I made up on my website is from the Vintners reserve world vineyard collection, it cost me Â£46.95, the vintners reserve range cost around Â£42.95.Bigster wrote:I normally make my wine from scratch but have tried a few beaverdales - are the kits you use the next step up from those in quality and how much do you pay for 30 bottles.
I have made Beaverdale wines myself and have been delighted with them, I sometimes prefer a less robust wine during the summer months. I have a few bottles of Beaverdale Rioja and Chardonnay in my wine racks.
I am also a big fan of the Selection wine kits, not cheap at Â£59.50, take it from me they are worth every penny. These kits must be left at least 6 months to mature imho to enjoy them at their best.
As a general rule, the more grape juice that the wine kit contains, the more robust it will be. I prefer a more robust, full bodied wine during the winter months.
Yeah, looking at it now I realise how much time and effort I have put in to it! I deliberately tried to create something differant to DaaB's excellent site, judging by everyone's kind remarks I think I have suceeded.prodical2 wrote:No wonder you have been quite for a while it must of taken ages to bring all of that info together, what a great resource and a fine compliment to DaaBs site.
I have been brewing for about 26 years now, ag for 11 years. I thought I knew it all until I arrived here, did I get a wake up call! I have picked up loads of useful tips and sound advice here and I feel that I have fine tuned my brews in the last year or so thanks to everyone here, therefore I feel that it is only fair that I should try to give something back.
Love the Moxy jibes by the way, Mrs H thinks they are hilarious!
