Another option for carbonation (due to the very low finishing pH) is to skip bottle conditioning. Ferment dry, force carbonate and bottle with a counter pressure "beer gun".

I agree - I'd hate to add some corn sugar and wine yeast, then wait a few months and have the re-fermentation not occur because of the pH or ABV... That would suck having to open all the bottles, carefully pour them into a keg and carbonate. Too bad there isn't a cap that changes color based on the internal pressure of the bottle. Damn - if I could engineer it I'd make millions!!! Ahhhhh....



OK - head out of clouds. Back to work.
