Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
We don’t post prices because they are always subject to change. Also it is so helpful if we’re able to explain pricing based on quality levels etc. However so you have something to work wine.. A batch of wine runs from $65-$230, beer is typically $55 unless a limited edition. If you want in-store winemaking it’s $55 or beer brewing it’s $30. Then depending on what you need we also sell bottles, labels, shrinks, etc. Roughly we figure our craft wine and beer works out to be about 1/3 the price of the commercial equivalent you;r find at the liquor store!
How many bottles are in a batch of wine or beer?
There are 28-30 bottles in a wine batch.
A batch of beer makes the equivalent of about 65 regular beer bottles.
Do I have to make an appointment to start a wine or beer?
No you don’t. It doesn’t take long at all.. We’ll do our best to help you find the wine or beer you’ll like the most. Then we’ll get things started, you’ll purchase the batch, sign an agreement, and sprinkle the yeast!
How long does it take to make wine?
For 4-8 weeks depending on the batch and quality. Fruit wine and entry level wines take 4 weeks. Top end and limited edition wines take 8 weeks! Then there also an amazing selection of fine wines at the 5 and 6 week levels.
Do I have to age the wine after bottling?
Yes we recommend 3+ months of aging. However fruit wines and some lighter body wines are ready almost immediately after bottling so ask this question in store when you have selected your wine.
How long does beer take to make?
Beer take about 3 weeks and then needs to be bottled! After this leave the beer to sit for 2-3 weeks and you’ll have amazing beer totally ready to drink.
