Magnum Red Wine Kit Instructions

1. Wine Kit, add 5-6 litres of hot water to your cleaned and sterilised fermenter (lukewarm if glass), then add 3.5 kgs of white sugar. Mix well until completely dissolved.

2. Add the juice, rinse out and add any juice left in the can using hot water. Top up to 22.5 litres(5 gallons) in your fermenter using a mix of hot and cold water to achieve a temperature between 25 - 30 C. Mix well.

3. Add wine yeast/nutrient (sachet no.1) and mix well. Seal fermenter with an airlock, half filled with water.

4. Leave to ferment in constant temperature between 20-28 C. Fermentation will normally take 7-8 days (a little longer if low temp). Note: Always consider the risk of leaks or frothing when choosing place for fermenter. After fermentation (7-10 days) 

5. Red Wine check that fermentation is over, using a hydrometer. The reading should be 998 or lower. There should also be no more  activity (bubbles in airlock). If necessary, wait another day and re-check. If you don’t have a hydrometer, you can taste the wine. Check that it is not too sweet.

6. Wine - Rack off to another sterilized vessel using a syphon tube. Add stabiliser (sachet no.2) and shake/stir very thoroughly to  remove CO2. Repeat a 3-4 times with at least 1 hour in between. If you don’t have a 2nd vessel, you can skip the racking off here, but that will slow down clearing a little.

7. Magnum Wine Kit add finings A (sachet no.3) and mix well, then leave for 2-3 hours. After 2-3 hours, add finings B (sachet no.4), carefully stirring up any sediment, for only 15 seconds. Leave wine to clear for 2-7 days, preferably in a cool place on a table so you can
rack if off later without moving it first. Important: Do not rack off or try to remove CO2 before adding Finings B.

8. Wines after 2-7 days, should be crystal clear, syphon directly from fermenter to sterilised bottles and seal with corks or plastic  stoppers.

That’s it - your wine is now ready to drink
