How did the kit turn out? I'm thinking of picking up a pail for comparison to the Costco whites I picked up.
But I always de-gas the wine. I stir to degas it as per the instructions with the kit, but then as well, I also put a vacuum pump on the carboy and run the pump until bubbles stop appearing! It is surprising how much more the gets out!
I can't see it doing any harm with the Festa kits and I probably would do it anyway whether in the instructions or not!
With wines, I have always used a clearing agent, and in addition found that using a Buon Vino electric wine filter really brightened up the appearance of the wine - I think it is only a cosmetic thing, but it looks much nicer!
PS - I did try a couple of the Festa Brew pasteurized wort kits before getting fully into all-grain brewing, and was quite happy with the results and would do one again if pressed for time to have a "brew day!"
