I will take just about any advice offered by Danger Mouse...

Compared too what? If its just finished in primary and you stick a lid on it and put it under your sink it would probably explode... or if your lucky just be really fizzy.

Unless you mean put it under airlock in your fridge but then continue to drink it, in which case it would get more and more exposure to air each time you open it and you will end up with something very oxidised - in some wines this would make it a bit sherry like, in others just tastes nasty.

All wine is mixed in a bucket and left to rot. Fermentation is a fancy name for spoilage.

With something like this, you do run the risk of oxidizing your wine every time you feel like a glass at dinner. What about something half-way in between? Siphon the wine into one gallon jugs, and then serve yourself from those. You'll still be exposing the wine to oxygen, but only some of it at a time.

Thanks MalFet
How long would it keep like that before it got so oxidized that it would affect the taste?
few days? few weeks?

Thanks

Good question. My wife is a bit sensitive to the taste of sulfites, so we tend to use only a tiny bit in our wine kits. As a result, things don't last too long. Bottles are noticeably oxidized after 48 hours and darn-right unpleasant after about 4 days, even with our gimmicky vacuum sealer. If you go a bit more aggressively with the K-meta, you might be able to go longer. Sorry man, I know that's not a terribly specific answer.
