Yes they are good for carbing, but are basically sugar tablets. A cheaper alternative is to use corn sugar or dextrose to carbonate. You'll find that as you get into this hobby that buying commonly used items in bulk will save much time and $ (i.e. pickup two packets of whatever yeast you need at the time). You'll get an idea of what to stock up on as you progress and gain experience.
It's an addictive adventure
. As your supplies accumulate and you make more wine, you'll also quickly grow out of vessles. It seems the day you finally get a dozen 1gal carboys is the same day you decide to do nothing less than 5gal at a time...and so on...
Congrats on the first batch and keep us posted as it goes. Welcome to the club.
