Hey all I hope you are all doing well.
I recently got a cornelius setup, and decided that I would carb some sparkling wine first.
I did some reading, and since I didn't have a fridge at that point I set the co2to 4 volumes. I have since got a t-stat controlled freezer set at 45, and allowed the wine to chill overnight with the gas on.
I then turned down the regulator to 10lbs dispensing pressure, and hooked up a picnic tap.
I also burped the keg(w/gas shut off) to releive the excess pressure, and then turned the gas back on before dispensing.
When I dispense I got a huge head, and by the time it goes down, the wine is practically flat
. It ain't bubbly unless it bubbles, right? I even chilled the glass on a second attempt and got a slightly better result, but not by much.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
