My beer is just fine. I've made 5 or 6 kits now and while not fantastic, they've all been drinkable and even quite pleasant in a couple of cases.
Wine is a different matter. I think I've made 5 lots now and only one was drinkable. And it's different each time. One was too watery, one was sour, another smelled of JIF and the one I've just made is really cloudy. Half the bottles smell of vinegar and the other taste OK but are really cloudy.
I always clean all equipment very thoroughly with the proper products. I sterilise everything carefully and always follow the instructions. Different kits but I just can't seem to get things right.
It's usually the same process. Any tips? What always surprises me is how active the wine gets. Afgter a couple of days it's frothing away like mad, is that normal?
