Ok, Have a wine expert 30 day kit I have been trying to degass now for 14 days. It was supposed to be ready to bottle tommorow but I cannot get the co2 out. I have used the whip with my drill and the mighty vac religously every day for 2 weeks. It just will not degas and I feel like I am ruining the wine by doing this everyday.Should I keep degassing or give up. If I give up what are my bottling options. The wine taste good so I dont want to dump it. I dont think it would be wise to cork it as I intended because I am scared it might blow. What would you guys do? Also I did everything per the instructions
Rdwhahb. Without the recipe and yeast I couldn't even guess what's going on. If this is your first than be patient. The directions cannot account for yeast activity, temp, etc.. If you have co2 than you have fermentation. That's the point,eh? Every time you think you should mess with, read a sticky or get on hbtwiki and read yourself into calmness.
I bumped the temp up to bout 80f about 5 days ago and the wine temp is about 76. Is it OK to keep doing it every day. Should I add some more kmeta just in case. I am scared it is going to get contaminated the more I monkey with it.
