Start of by purchasing your minimum equipment requirements and the ingredients you need. For beginners we suggest either wine, beer, cider or spirit kits. Spirit kits turn out to be the cheapest per litre of percentage ABV and it's also the easiest as there's less to go wrong. Ensure all of your equipment has been sterilised. Your syphon doesn't need sterilising at this point and neither does your second vessel or bottles. If you sterilise these now, you will need to sterilise them again after the fermentation has finished. All instructions can be found in the ingredients kit you have purchased, whatever instructions are in the kit must be followed if they are different to the instructions on this page as these instructions are only general. For more specific instructions for our kits please visit our downloads page.
