Q Richard (Whitwell, TN)
Does your kit include a carboy?
Yes, it comes with a 6 gallon plastic carboy as well as the rubber stopper and air-lock to seal it air-tight. The carboy is made out of the same plastic used to make 2 liter soda pop bottles.

Q Dave (Macungie, PA)
Does this kit come with a corker?
No, it does not come with a corker. The kit comes with mushroom corks that can be put in by hand.

Q Steve (Trinidad, CO)
Can I use any of the SunCal juices with the California Connoisseur Kit?
You can use the SunCal juice with the equipment that comes in the California Connoisseur Kit for the primary fermentation (the first 5-7 days). After the first racking, you would need to put the SunCal in a smaller container, a 5 gallon carboy or the 6 gallon screw top fermenter. The reason is that there would be too much head/air space in the 9 gallon tuff tanks that come in the California Connoisseur Necessities Box.

Q Jerry (Pottsboro, TX)
If I were to buy this kit, can I make wine (later on) using my own fruits?
You can use the equipment using your own fruit. You will have to purchase the ingredients separately because the kit only comes with enough ingredients for the one batch of California Connoisseur concentrate. You also may need a different secondary fermenter depending on the size of batches you make. The reason is that you do not want any head/air space in the container after the first racking.
