£79.95


UK MAINLAND ONLY
Scotland and Northern Ireland Call

Native to Sicily, it has become one of the island ‘s best-known red varietals. Nero D ‘Avola is capable of producing wines of great distinction with complexity, richness and texture that are capable of aging for many years. The predominant bouquet is of ripe black cherries with a hint of underbrush and an ever so slight ripe banana nuance. Aged with the right amount of oak (supplied), this wine will surpass all your expectations.

Please note: This wine kit may or may not contain oak chippings. However it is at your own discretion to use them or not in accordance to your own taste.

Your guide to calculate ABV, by use of a Hydrometer.

Step 1 – Take the reading of the original/starting gravity (OG/SG) BEFORE pitching the yeast and ignoring the meniscus dip, E.g. 1050 (1.050) on the hydrometer. Note it down.

Step 2 – Day 12/14 take the final gravity reading and again ignoring the meniscus dip, E.g. 1005 (1.005) Note it down.

Step 3 – take away the smaller No. (1050-1005) = 45

Step 4 – divide the answer (45) by 7.64 = 5.89 round it off to the nearest whole No. in this case it’s 5.9

Step 5 – now add to the 5.9 answer a further .5 this allows for secondary fermentation in the bottle, barrel or keg. The calculated ABV of your beer is now 6.4% - Not Bad!!

You can use this calculation for both Beer & Wine making however, because wine does not require a secondary fermentation, please ignore step 5 above.
