and falling out of solution.Uhm. Well. Yes, it does in fact. My point was that is is not just

I'm in the same boat with a Grand Cru that hasn't carbed up after 8 months in the bottle,

I've done the same thing, nick a condenser coil on the outside of a chest freezer. Fortunately,
there is a HVAC department where I work, and they were very helpful. The key to doing it
yourself is bei...
