I'm definitely going to hop online and get the Dec/Jan copy of winemaker magazine that does a review of all the different kits.
For now I'm just hoping that my Chilean Malbec turns out to be similar/better than the $3 Chilean Malbec that I can get at Trader Joe's. Do a side by side, and if it's not better I'm really going to have to think more about the wine side of this hobby.
That Winemaker issue is already out (at least we have it at the library that I work at).
Right now, I have several different wines aging: one kit (orange chocolate port), 2 fruit wines (mixed berry & strawberry), 3 wines from fresh grape juice from the Chilean harvest (mixed grape, cab, & malbec), & and one share of malbec from pressed grapes that was made at PTN house last may
