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.

Fermaid O yeast nutrient - certified organic.

Fermaid O™ is a blend of inactivated yeast fractions rich in organic nitrogen. Fermaid O™ does not contain added ammonia salts (DAP) or micronutrients. The importance of organic nitrogen from yeasts is well known as a highly efficient nutrient source for wine yeasts, especially when compared to inorganic nitrogen from DAP. In addition, Fermaid O™ consistently produces lower heat of fermentation and lower levels of negative sulfur compounds, compared with DAP. With its high content of organic nitrogen, Fermaid O™ can help winemakers achieve steady fermentations, while limiting temperature peaks. When inorganic nitrogen (DAP) additions are NOT desired, the use of Go-Ferm or GO-FERM PROTECT and Fermaid O™ is recommended. With this combination, Go-Ferm or GO-FERM PROTECT provides needed micronutrients during yeast rehydration, and Fermaid O™ (when added at 1/3 sugar depletion) supplies critical nutrients and survival factors to help the yeast avoid stressed conditions.

Dosage recommendations: Add 40 g/hL (3 1/2 lb/1000 gal) of Fermaid O , 20 g/hL at the end of the lag phase and another 20 g/hL around 1/3 sugar depletion.
