If you think you know the answer, then why are you asking the question? I may be inexperienced but, as you say, it's not rocket science. The experienced people here see right through you and I am just backing them up with evidence. Your problem is that no one believes you and as a result no one is willing to help you. This site is about beer, wine, mead, and cider, and what you are making is, quite apparant, none of the above.
