27 March 2020 8.30am: Please assume we are unable to send orders until further notice due to the Covid-19 Lockdown which currently restricts freight services to essential supplies only.

You can still shop! No payment required yet.  Shopping early will prioritise your purchase when we are able to ship again. When you go through the checkout process you will be able to place your order and the only "payment" option is "order now, pay later".

Our unlimited email support for customers continues during the lockdown because we are home-based.  If you did not purchase your products at makewine but require advice you can still purchase advice at our home winemaking advice page and of course browse our how to make wine at home pages for information.  Genuine pre-purchase enquiries are of course welcome.

If you are harvesting fruit you can freeze it for making wine once you are able to access supplies.  If making 5 litre batches we suggest you freeze in 2kg lots.  Most fruit can be frozen whole but do remove any bad spots.

Airlock
airlock

Airlock (or fermentation lock) allows the carbon dioxide to escape from your wine or brew during fermentation whilst maintaining a barrier to keep oxygen and micro-organisms out.

Pour some potassium metabisulphite solution or water in the airlock, insert it in the top of your fermenter.  The airlock allows the carbon dioxide to escape whilst your wine is fermenting, whilst maintaining a barrier to keep oxygen and micro-organisms out.

Product may differ slightly from picture and s-bend style may or may not have a cap on it.  

Choose from the s-bend or bubbler airlock or the cylindrical style (aka senior airlock). The senior airlock style may suit you if you have limited height to store your wine as it protrudes less far than the s-bend style. (about 10cm above the bung compared to about 16cm for the s-bend).
