its not too difficult. racking is more important for clarity. make sure you get your hands on some bottles. 5 gal is something like 23-25 750 ml bottles of wine. kit is a good way to go your first time. 3 months min to drink time, a lot of people give it a year.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm also looking into getting a Cabernet going. It's been about 9 or 10 months from when this thread was started so I wanted to see if anyone had great results with a certain kit? Any update to your fermentation? Thank you!
