    Best way to bottle a quad?

    I have plain old 12oz brownies and clear wine. I do have a corker. I am thinking I may get corkable brown (either 22oz or 750ml) and some wax. Or is wax more of a crown cap thing? I could get capping bottles and wax. Suppose best to get O2 barrier caps. That way I can just stand them up.

    That's what I was thinking but had to ask. Guess it will just be a summer pre-chiller for the plate chiller

    Copper ok for immersion chiller to control fermentor temps?

    I recently went from immersion chilling to a plate chiller. I also just read an article in BYO in which they make an immersion chiller for fermenting/layering. However in the build they use a stainless chiller. I was wondering if there are any known issues that would advise me that this same...
