Beaverdale Chardonnay

Made a great kit, tell us about it, made something not so great from a kit, warn the rest of us.

As with the other Beaverdale kit I made today a quick starter once the yeast was added. Hoping that after a couple of months in the bottle it will made a passable wine.

We tried this after 4 months and it was lovely! As we only made 5 bottles it didn't last very long but the bottle that lasted 5 months was very good. We are now making a 30 bottle kit that is due to be bottled this weekend. I would recommend this kit. Much better than some of the "shop" chardonnays we have tried.

Good to here the positive reviews for this Mrs disorder has just bought this to do as her first attempt at home brewing. Couple of questions 1) do you rehydrate the yeast for wine?
2) is temp control over fermentation as important as with beer or could I sit it in a cool corner at 20c ish
