Island Mist Premium Fruit Flavored Wine Kits are a combination of natural fruit flavoring & concentrate which produce a light alcohol (6% – 7.5%) drink that is lighter and more fruity than table wines. These kits contain 6 liters of juice packaged in an aseptic, nitrogen purged juice bag.
Each wine kit contains concentrated juice plus all of the necessary ingredients to make the specified amount of wine. The ingredients typically include yeast, bentonite, potassium metabisulfite, potassium sorbate and a fining agent. Some kits may also contain oak, ederberries, currants, other ingredients specific to the wine kit and/or a flavoring pack. Does not include winemaking equipment or hardware.
If you’re a fan of the Island Mist Series kits but like your wines a little bit stronger, consider “bumping” them with 1 pound of corn sugar and 1 liter of grape concentrate. “Boosting” Guide: The boosting of an Island Mist series kit is easy and brings the alcohol content to approx 9.5-10%. Simply adding corn sugar alone will boost the alcohol of your kit without adding body or mouthfeel to support this increase. Doing this will leave your wine tasting “hot” and unbalanced. The addition of white or red grape concentrate leaves your wine with more balance and produces a more enjoyable end product. Both the 1 lb corn sugar and 1 liter of grape concentrate should be mixed in stage 1 after adding your main juice pack and before topping up to the 6 gallon mark with water.
