    Resurrecting the thread, I can only say: I did this yesterday, and it saved me $12 over buying
    one at the LHBS. I cut it to fit the mouth of my Better Bottle, and it worked perfectly when
    used. Brilli...

    I've got a batch of the Vino Italiano Rosso Magnifico (their "Super Tuscan") that I made not to
    volume, but to SG of 1.090 - it came out at 5.3gal in primary. I also used Lalvin Bourgovin
    RC212 yeast,...

    It could just be off-gassing. The bubbler is not the definitive indicator that fermentation is
    complete: the hydrometer will tell you. If you take readings on three consecutive days and it
    reads the s...

  • Posted in thread: Rapid fermentation? (and topping up) on 04-20-2012 at 05:51 AM
    By 'let ferment dry' do you mean let it ferment without adding water?No, "let ferment dry"
    means let it go as-is until the yeasts have eaten all the sugars, so that it tastes dry (versus
    sweet or "off...

    Thanks for the recommendations! I'm procrastinating working on a paper that's due tomorrow, so
    I think I'll rack some wine instead!

  • Posted in thread: My 1st kit is underway: RdC Amarone - Questions on 04-19-2012 at 11:35 PM
    My first batch of kit wine has been underway since the start of the month (19 days now), and I
    thought I'd follow Jack's Extended Kit instructions. One thing he didn't list was the use of
    bentonite be...

    Wait. The heat will die down. Eventually.Or leave it as-is, keg it, and mix with fresh lemonade
    as you serve. that will kick up the lemon flavor and tone down the hooch-taste at the same time
    (think "...

    I have and use one, and can confirm that you will go through 2-3 chargers to serve a keg. You

    but this d...

    Let me lead off with this warning: I don't have enough experience as a vintner to provide a
    definitive answer, but here are a few thoughts to consider:*Most kits start with 6 gallons in
    primary, a por...
