Where in the heck do you find new/unused IV bags! First you need to fake an illness you
call the ambulance, they connect you to an IV at the hospital. You tell them you need to go for
a smoke outs...

I tranfer the wine back to a carboy and fill the barrel with water. The leak stop after 4 days
and the wine is back to the barrel

using sugar ...
