Any ideas on how long this takes?
I only made wine once, but I had a little propeller-type thing attached to a drill that I used to de-gas the wine. It took only about 5 or 10 minutes with that gizmo, but that thing whipped the wine so fast, it was actually causing it to foam on it's own.
Are you using man-power to de-gas, or you using some machine?
