The Importance of Reading Instructions.

March 30, 2012

The home winemaking industry is constantly changing. The kit manufacturers are acquiring better raw materials for improved flavour and aromas,better technologies and as a result changes to methodologies. The wine kit manufacturer will adjust their instructions to ensure you get the most out of your wine so it is very important that you read AND follow the instructions.

For example some kits are adding oak cubes that go into the secondary instead of the primary or sometimes there are two packs of yeast or other add packs that have to be added.

And of course different manufactures have instructions that they feel work best for their kits- so what you are use to doing may be different when you try a different wine kit. It doesn’t mean one set of instructions is better or worse than the other- just different because the winemaker for a certain manufacturer has their philosophies.

A lot of work goes into wine kit instructions- they’re clear concise and really do make things easier. Especially when compared to many of the ‘do it yourself’ instructions that you see today…











So whenever you start your wine kit- review the instructions for any changes and follow them to ensure you make the best wine possible : )
