Great price for a 30-bottle kit with all you need to finish the wine ready for bottling i.e yeast & nutrient, clearing agents & stabilser. Haven't made it yet but mango is a strong flavor so you don't need much for flavor and I hope it will be a subtle taste. Let me know if anyone has made it. This retailer has various other kits too like pomegranate which I intend to try.

ordered thanks x

Mmm mango wine! I want some now lol.

So what else would a complete beginner need in addition to buying this kit?

fablanta - I received no updates even though I asked for them so I have only just seen your comments. You need a fermenting bin, a syphon tube and 30 bottles; if you are a wine drinker, then screw-top bottles are fine. You also need sterilising solution and for this, get some sterilising tablets usually used for baby equipment, which are vastly cheaper than the highly over-priced powders from a wine-making outlet. Sterilise the bin to the top and then syphon the solution, (which can be used at least 3/4 times),into the bolltes - you will probably need more than 30 as bins hold more than 5 gallons(30 bots.). And if you want to re-use the solution then you need even more bottles to put it into. Follow instructions and put the relevant kit contents in the bin. Leave to ferment in as warm a place as possible up to 26C. When fermentation has finished - a hydrometer is useful to help with determining that but if it tastes dry and no yeast activity can be detected it has finished fermenting. Add the stabilser and finings - clearing agents. There is no need to syphon into another bin - while this will leave most of the deposit behind, another deposit will settle in the 2nd bin anyway, so not much is achieved by using a 2nd bin. Once clear, you can bottle the wine. Leave as long as possible before drinking - at least a month but up to 6 months is better. Happy slurping!.

Thanks for putting all this info together. It doesn't look too expensive to put together so I might give this a go.

I have to say my mango wine has not cleared after 7 days!! The finings are 2-part whereas most kits have 3-part finings. My 2nd kit from this supplier has not cleared either after 4 days. I will contact the supplier and post again.

PS - I messaged the supplier - Garffen Ltd - via Ebay and they did not reply. Both wines have not cleared still. I am making a chargeback claim on my credit card and THIS SUPPLIER IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
