    Carbonic acid

    Question for you chemistry guys. Carbonic acid is produced when the beer is carbonated. What if you lose carbonation and re-carbonate does the acid level increase? Put another way if the bubble disappear does the acid remain?

    carbonation level

    Hello all, I've never carbonated a wine and wondered what level of carbonation would be appropriate for a Moscoto. I've done plenty of beer but didn't know if wine was better at different volumes of Co2.

    Co2 regulator problem

    Hey guys, Anyone have trouble like I am with my Co2 regulator? For a long time it's been fine, but lately it's started to creep up on it's own. I'll back it down again and it will be up a few psi when I see it a few days later.
