New to Wine Making? Don't worry, we were too at one point. Whether you're just getting into making your own wine, or getting back into it after a hiatus, it makes sense to start out with what you need, and not all the fancy extra bells and whistles.
Our Starter Kits come with everything you need to make wine from start to finish, just add your first recipe kit. Those are based on taste so we'll leave it to you to decide your first batch! For a winemaking introduction, read over the Introduction to Winemaking article in our learn center.
6 Gallon Glass Carboy
When ready to make your wine, you'll need a place to ferment it. Glass carboys and fermenting buckets are a winemaker's go-to. Glass heavy so caution must be used, but it's difficult to scratch making it easy to sanitize...it also looks nice.
3 Piece Airlock and Carboy Stopper
These two pieces create an air-tight seal so contaminated air can't get in, but CO2 can get out. Watch for the airlock to pop and see your yeast at work.
6.5 Gallon Fermenting Bucket
At 6.5 gallon capacity, this bucket allows plenty of headspace for a vigorous fermentation.
6.5 Gallon Bottling Bucket with Bottling Spigot
After your wine ferments there's the task of bottling; which is made easy with this bottling bucket.
3/8” Auto-Siphon/Racking Cane with Tubing and Clamp
You'll need to move your wine from one container to another through the brew process. Just a couple of pumps of the auto-siphon will get your wine flowing. Clamp it to the side of your bucket and let it flow.
3/8" Bottle Filler
Bottle fillers allow wine to flow through them when their tip is pressed to the bottom of a bottle. Move the tip away from the bottom and wine will stop. Simple, and effective.
Floating and Adhesive Thermometer
The quality of wine fermentation is directly affected by temperature. We got you covered with these accurate thermometers.
This tool is key to determining how much sugar you have in your wine (which is food for yeast in fermentation). It's useful for monitoring the progress of fermentation as well as the final alcohol content of the wine.
Wine Bottle Brush
We recommend reusing bottles, but they'll need to be clean and sanitary. Combine this brush with a recommended cleanser to get your bottles in pristine order.
8 oz B-BRITE™ Cleanser
Bacteria will ruin a wine which makes sanitation vital to successful fermenting and bottling. B-Brite will be your friend through the entire process eliminating bacteria and leaving your gear ready to roll.
After you've bottled your first batch you'll need to clean out that carboy. It's not easy to do without the right brush, but don't you worry.
