Where Can I Find a Cheap Wine Making Kit?


Looking for a good cheap wine making kit?  Obviously the Internet is your #1 resource.  We can help steer you in the right direction.  There are two types of kits: the ones that include the equipment and ingredients, and the ones that include only one of the other.  We’ll explore both options so you can decide which direction you want to go.

Probably the least expensive wine making kit on the market is one found on Yahoo! Stores for about $30.  It includes all the equipment you need if you’re just starting out in the art of manufacturing your own juice.  The kit comes with two fermenters, stopper, lock, straining bag, siphon hose, yeast, hydrometer, and ingredients for making the wine.  It produces a gallon of smooth-tasting wine.

The next cheapest is around $40 on WineandCake.com.  Wine and Cake, Inc. is a family owned business that’s been in operation for 25 years, so they know their business when it comes to good wine.  They offer a 1 gal. kit which also includes the essentials: lid with grommet, jugs, topper, airlock, siphon, straining bag, and ingredients.  It also comes with a book entitled “Enjoy Home Wine Making”.

Now if you’re looking for something in a larger capacity–say 7.5 liters (2 gal.), you’ll want to turn your eyes to HomeBrewers.com.  They offer a product called Vintners Reserve Shiraz Wine Kit for $71.95.  It’s higher priced than the other two, but really it’s not if you consider you’re getting twice as much wine.  This kit however, does not include the equipment.  It is simply a grape juice concentrate.  Oh, but boy it is delicious!  So if you’re worried you won’t get your money’s worth, don’t be.  Trust me, you will.

Another place you might try is eBay, one of the largest online auction sites in the universe.  Instead of buying from a merchant, you may find it cheaper to buy a used kit from a previous wine maker who’s deciding to get out of the business.  Another similar outlet is Amazon.com.  They don’t auction items, but they are a gigantic source for items.
