    Rick, it's most likely oxidation. Lately there have been a ton of discussions on this. Just do
    some searching and you'll probably find some techniques.We're realizing how sensitive our

    Just a quick question. Is one purge considered a complete fill of co2 in the headspace, then
    disconnecting the gas line and venting all of the co2, then repeating?Or is it filling the
