    I wasn't really a fan of saison beer until I tasted the Brasserie Charlevoix Dominus Vobiscum
    Saison.What I really liked in this beer is it's a refreshing beer with fruit aroma and flavor
    and without ...

    I had that problem once ... the airlock wasn't tightly seated in the hole so a small spacing
    between the rubber plug and the cover was leaking CO2. I should add that the hole was hand made
    with an uti...

    No, I think you misunderstand. You only add sorbate if it's needed- like if you are sweetening
    the wine. If you add sorbate, you should also add the sulfites for a couple of reasons. But if

    oxidation and i...

    I forgot to buy a tubing for transfering the sanitizer from my new conical fermentor to a
    storage carboy.I had to stay beside the carboy to push it toward the fermentor so the stream

    Should I use sulfite to stabilize my cider / mead? Do you use sulfite?I think that sulfite
    could be use when backsweeting.I haven't found any warning against sulfiting beside if someone
    is allergic.I ...
