Do the main BMC distributors, as an industry, typically take care of CO2 or is it a separate

At the restaurant where I work, the ownership and management is very conservative to say the
least. They still have an air compressor based tap system that probably dates back to the 70s.

I suppose I can't complain about too much wine, I just don't want to give them any more than

rose wine i...

My goal isn't to have it drinkable by June, just at the very least bottled by then. It can

sealed in styrofoam so I shouldn't have an issue there. I just wish I had an easier way to

I'll probably end up making a starter batch and washing, bottling or kegging that one, and

Chello: Yes I've considered the venue issue. The bride to be and I actually discussed it. They
