Back on topic...My stance on kit instructions applies to more than just beer/wine making, I'll rarely follow instructions that come with anything I buy since I would rather get advice from the pros than a marketer. Instead I look at them as suggestions and a parts list and that's about it. However, by the sound of it wine kit instructions are better than average. I'll have to keep that in mind for the next kit I do. As it is, I am about 2 racks into clarification (30 days apart), I'll let it sit for 45-60 days and rack again if needed. Thanks for the help.
So if you where going to bake a cake from a box would you follow the instructions?
