That is EXACTLY what I needed, thank you!

"Keep in mind that a 0.1% solution can be made by diluting your 10mL of 1% solution
into another 90mL of water, in which case you would want to add 15mL/gal to achieve
0.1ppm Cu in solution. This can be helpful if you are working with smaller volumes of
wine and are having trouble measuring multiples of 0.15mL. Dilutions should always be
performed with distilled or de-ionized water. "

I love this forum. Have a question, post it and an hour and a half later you get an answer.

Thanks for the reply.

Hence the term "dry", it's "drier" than water.

Mark, There are two causes of rotten egg smell or sulfur. One can be driven off of with CO2. One cannot. I would try the CO2 method first.

Started my first attempt at making SP last night. Made my slurry out of Welch's white white grape juice a couple of days ago. Only a one gallon batch and it fermented out in two days. Pitched the slurry into the SP mix last night around 11pm. I already have some activity showing in the airlock.

I think the Welche's white juice wine types make good SP starters. What type of yeast did you use?

And what can i do to solve it.
Sounds like the post needs to be checked. That has nothing to do with the skeeter pee. Probably needs the poppet gaskets cleaned/lubed and/or replaced.

That's not that weird. It is leaking out of the top of the poppet?

I used Lalvin 71B-1122. Started a little slow, but I think it was because the temperature was too low, 68F. I used a warmer and now the temp is holding around 76. It seems to be working well now.
