Firstly can I apologise if the questions are basic and already answered elsewhere on the forum.
I have just completed my first 6 bottle wine kit, I have followed the brief instructions to the letter, but am still unclear on a couple points.
1, I have sterilized everything before i started but then used tap water, was this the right thing to do as this would not have been germ free.
2, The mixture has almost stopped bubbling so i then add the wine stabiliser, the instructions say to mix it first in a cup before putting in the mix, does this cup have to be sterilised at this stage because as far as i undersatnd the yeast would be now dead.
3, Do I still have to sterilize the bottles that i intend to use and would it be ok to use old swilled out, screw top bottles.
Thanks for the advice in advance and i know i am probably going over the top but i realy want this to be a success.
Kind Regards Ian
