we use this technique in the lab to degas buffers and solutions and such. Nice job doing it at home.

Yuri I had thought about using my vacuum pump(for ac) and freezer as a means of drying hops,basically freeze drying and think it would work, but never thought about degassing with vacuum. great idea! sure wish I had the hops to try freeze drying. But it might pull the volatile oils off first. what are your thoughts?

If you just making a gallon of wine what about putting it on a stir plate for a few minutes?

Amazing, but why?

I'm stumped, or just plain old gassy, but what's the benefit of degassing?

degassing removes CO2 and lets the yeasties breathe. It might also have something to do with changing the osmotic pressure. read that last bit somewhere just cant recall where.

sometimes you will end up with a very light carbonation inside of a brew that is not going to be carbonated i.e. wine, and this is a way of making it flat, like commercial wine.

i'm guessing about any air pump can do this without too much difficulty.
I think a standard vacuum might be dangerous because of possible implosion?

That is pretty cool. This may be a dumb question, but is it really possible for a foodsaver to cause a carboy to implode? Is it fair to assume that doing this on a Better Bottle is completely out of the question.

Thanks

I'm not certain that it's possible for a FoodSaver to create enough negative pressure to cause damage to a carboy, but I'm not going to be the first to find out, either. I wouldn't use this technique on a Better Bottle - one of those will almost definitely cave in on itself.

So was it determined that you could do a full size carboy, or still no?
