Glad you were impressed. Upon second reading of my critique, I am almost embarrassed by the niggling!

Niggling? I thought I knew niggling until moving to PA a few years ago... One of the friends I've made since moving here is a retired Nuclear Plant QC Inspector. Let us just say that Bob adds new meaning to the word.

Nice! I think we want that in a Nuclear Plant QC Inspector!

Perhaps not to that extent, but it is an occupational hazard for me, too. We are trained to always look for errors. Not in a mean way, but just as a way to do the checks you can.

Says for storage up to 12 months.

For me, I think that would only include my fruit wines which generally drink more openly than my grape wines.

I try to hid my grape wines so I don't drink them up too quickly!

It is not difficult to use a prior fill fixed volume reservoir then gravity feed wine into the pouch. So was not even sure why he filled by weight... But it is his video not mine and it does give a method most anyone can use (as most anyone has a scale).

But, even so, I am sure even a small commercial winery will mostly consider using their $2,700 machine with volume level for resale bags, not so much the little $200 one in the video.

But even I found the little unit to load up bags for demos or give aways really something to consider. Easier to carry to events, conferences, potential clients, etc than bottles. And then exact volumes are not so important.

You are correct that, didactically, this is sub optimal.

But I think this is more an example of not wanting to bore the video audience with micromanaging the method in the video, just claim to do as I say not as I do, and then move more quickly to the rest of the demo.

Let's just say the videos were clearly not made by video professional consultants. But I don't mind that. If they were too slick, and polished, I would probably not trust them.

Naw. Don't be. Who amongst us who has not niggled a video for the errors we see therein should throw the first camera at you. Trust me, you are safe from harm.
