Yes, I"d probably not use these kits because of the high concentrate. My preference is to use more juice, less concentrate. Otherwise, there is a "kit taste" that doesn't seem to go away.
So, that kit makes 640 ounces using 192 ounces of concentrate. This kit: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...d5388be944a69b
(I've seen it cheaper locally) uses 333 ounces (2.6 gallons) to make 768 ounces of wine. The "lowest quality" kit I would go with is that Vintner's Reserve kit. But I've seen it for $57 from time to time at another place.
