This boxed starter kit makes a cool low cost present for potential wine or beer makers (it can be used for both). It has a higher quality fermentation bucket that other kits, and a telescopic de-luxe model syphon containing a tube clip for controlling the flow of beer at bottling time; this is the only syphon that is compatible with the new Mark 4 beer and wine filter.
In summary, this is a low cost kit containing quality components that can be used as a stand alone wine or beer equipment set, and also form the foundation for a more sophisticated set up.
For wine makers, we suggest adding another fermenter (ideally a Better Bottle, although a 25 or 33 liter fermenter will suffice) for secondary fermentation.
- 33 liter bucket with scale, lid, and bung,
- bubbler airlock,
- syphon, telescopic de-luxe model including siphon tube clip for controlling flow,
- thermometer, thin, Centigrade/Farenheit scale
Does not come with a wine ingredients kit, so you will have to buy one separately; for beginners, we would suggest starting with a Cantina wine kit as they are very easy to make, great value for money, and are ready to drink in just 5 days! We have found the Cantina Pinot Grigio very good, remarkable for a wine thats ready to drink in 5 days, and costing about a Euro per bottle to make!
We suggest you also buy VWP Cleanser 400 grm €4.79 which is perfect for cleaning and sterilizing all of your equipment.
