O2 and carb stone is good. I use a hand mixer and stir it at high speed. Mix the hell out of it. Lots of splashing. This only works in a plastic bucket. Glass carboys are hard to oxygenate unless you...

And, yes, this will need much less time conditioning because 1. Lower alcohol means less stress on yeast 2. You are covering any off flavors with juice from backsweetening and any spices you add.

A guest tap would be great but I'm not sure they'd be able to without having a wine license. It's one of those strange rules the TTB has. The building you are referring to would be a stellar spot. ...

Yeah good point. They've got three fermentables in there so there can't be much of each. Must be some water in there to bring it back down right? What else could they do?
