    I've come across some of this stuff at work used for a water treatment unit. Could I use this
    for cleaning bottles/kegs at home or should I be wary of it. On the label it says "repackaged

    Ok back to the cab with what I thought was having some problems with. After 10 days in the

    Ok thats good to hear. I just haven't seen any activity or a bubble on the wine so I was a

    wrong?Thanks again e...

    Not sure if I messed up the cab at this point. It is sitting in the carboy in the secondary
    fermentation stage for the past 5 days and nothing is going on. The same as if it was water in
    there. To giv...
