I just ordered 4 kegs from cornykeg.com for a friend's kegerator build. Unfortunately, the mini-fridge that I'm using will fit the narrower Pepsi-style kegs, but not the Coke-style kegs (converted...

I had another taste of mine, but I still think I want to give it more time to get oaky. It is certainly getting *better*, but it still has a long way to go.

"TA" is a bit of a misnomer as it is more properly thought of as a measurement of buffering capacity (in other words, resistance to pH changes). pH is a measure of H+ ion concentration, or acidity.

Yeah, I'm hoping that they will mellow out, but it's possible with this wine that the young, "rough" flavors would have compensated for the fundamental lack of body.:D

The drill trick is the way to go. If you're a cheap bastard like me, you can cut up a plastic clothes hanger and stick it in your drill to make your own "wine whip" for free.

The equipment certainly won't be damaged. The worst that could happen is that the yeast wouldn't get enough O2 and the wine wouldn't turn out.
