We’ve been trying our hand at wine making using these kits… Our first batch was a Cabernet Sauvignon which tasted okay if you didn’t know it was a Cab Sauv. It’s red, it tastes like Pinot Grigio to me, and it’s bubbly like champagne. I’m sure the error was that we didn’t degas the wine enough with our “vigorous stirring” as we did it by hand.
So yes… If you do this, keep in mind that it’s sort of like wrestling a bear. Do it at your own risk.
