Hi Gazz,

Where did you pick those kits up at half price?!  I'm after a Chardonnay kit at the moment so if there any left...  Cheesy

Mark

P.S. Also 24 Litres of Red WOW (16L Sainsburys RGJ, 2L Tesco Apple Juice, 1L Sainsburys Prune Juice, 500g chopped raisins, 2.5kg sugar)!

Ah don't we just love "best before" shopkeepers panic and discount like crazy but the stuff is good for another year, just not quite as good as it was. Wink

I use the Young's Reisling kits in the same way, as an overpriced WGJ. (1 gallon kit = 4 gallons Easy White). When the juice famine set in, I used the Chardonnay kit at first, so maybe I'll try that again.

PS,

4 Gallons of Easy White,

23L Winebuddy Sauvignon Blanc - again made with 2L RGJ and 1L Apple Juice to create a Sauvignon 'Blush' - it's a simple mod but the result was surprisingly good the first time so I did it again!  The end result was a wine of 13.5% ABV, strong for a rosť but chilled in the fridge it was a huge success during the best of our summer afternoons.   Cool
