Posted in thread: Longest possible co2 generation on 05-11-2013 at 04:02 AM
Sounds like your making some undrinkable stuff. Champagne yeast can ferment up to about 16% abv
or so if it has enough sugars, most likely less than that in your case given the lack of
nutrients in yo...

Okay.. You have me puzzled, what lives in your fish tank that needs co2? Is it plants? I have

cider needs so...

Posted in thread: Cornucopia Fruit wine kit, Raspberry Merlot on 01-06-2013 at 02:55 PM
