Fresh Juice Kits

Fall 2015 Harvest Season is here!

100% Fresh Harvest Juice from California and Italy!

Hammersmith Homebrew is proud to offer Fresco, (Fresh Juice) from Mosti Mondiale, the supplier of Premium Fresh Juice and Must from the finest vineyards of California and Italy! 

What is fresh harvest juice?

Fresh juice is pure juice from freshly crushed grapes from the vineyards of California and Italy. The juice is shipped refrigerated to guarantee peak freshness.

What's so special about fresh juice kits?

The juices are harvested and shipped refrigerated from the vineyards of California and Italy during late summer and early autumn. Because juices are fresh and in a natural state, they are much more preferable to using chemically altered concentrates and kits for winemaking. And what you gain in freshness, you don't lose in ease. The procedure for making wine from juice is pretty straight forward, and similar to making wine from a kit or concentrates. There's no special equipment needed!

Are there any extra steps needed for using fresh juice kits?

Because juices are shipped refrigerated, it is recommended that you start making your wine within a day or two from the time you pick up your kit. After two days, the juice starts to ferment itself. If kept refrigerated, the juice will last up to two months.
