quality ( about larger kis)

We are often asked if we produce a ‘larger’ or ‘Superior’ kit. In order to properly respond, we have to look at what exactly goes into the makeup of a winemaking kit. To produce a standard 23 liters of wine at acceptable alcohol levels, we require a certain amount of fermentable solids in the form of grape concentrate, grape juice or other fermentables such as table sugar or liquid invert.We know that 6.3 liters of concentrate will give us a starting gravity of 1.094 when diluted to 23 liters.Some manufacturers use a combination of grape juice concentrate and grape juice and/or water and/or liquid invert sugar in both their smaller sized kits and their larger, ‘premium’ offerings.
