Beer Equipment -> Wine Equipment
 
Hello..

After Homebrewing beer for a while, I'd like to get into Wine, also...

I see these "Upgrade kits" at AHS, but Im curious if that is a 'permanent' upgrade.. I would still like to make beer.

It seems one would just need a larger fermenter, a corker and corks, and wine bottles.. provided you have existing beer equipment..

Usually theres nothing a good scrubbing of Oxyclean wont fix, but is it safe/effective to make wine and beer with (mostly) the same equipment??

Thanks in advance.. :rockin:

You are correct. Just remember that one of your fermenters is going to be out of commission for a much longer time and that you're going to need to be vigilant about checking fluid levels in your airlock.

I would use glass carboys easier to clean & just use bottle they cap & you dont have to keep the corks moist

I use the same carboys.. I have a different primary bucket because of the smell that seems to stay in it.. besides that all I needed extra was the corker.
