    Oxidation

    I did not add the copper sulfate yet.

    Oxidation

    JohnT thanks I did do the bench testing as required using 1 drop, 2 drop etc. calculations say to use 1/2 oz for 16 gl. Sound right to you?

    RW - the copper penny did a good job not 100% but a considerable difference.

    Oxidation

    Thanks I'll try that today. I can check for free SO2 will that work?

    Oxidation

    It has been oaked I was actually ready to bottle. The funny thing is the 1 gl of excess I have in a separate glass jug does not have the smell.

    Oxidation

    It smells like a really strong alcohol. Cannot smell the wine at all, very over powering. Taste like someone mixed it with ever clear .

    Oxidation

    Let me smell this again when I get home at lunch. I don't think it smells like rotten egg but I could me wrong. I have 1 gallon excess and this is normal so whatever happened to the wine happened in the SS keg. The color is normal and not brownish. More to come. Thanks

    Oxidation

    Okay is there any method I can try?

    Oxidation

    Unfortunately something went wrong and when I went to bottle my Chilean Carmenere I got the smell. Not terribly but enough to know I have oxidation. I need some methods other than redules. I will try this first but what else is out there other than dumping 16 gl in the garden?

    Need a Pump

    I had the same issue and was more than skeptical about buying a pump. So I had a Buon Vino Super Jet Wine Filter I was using to filter my wine. There it was right in front on me! I took the pump off the stand and mounted it to a piece of MDF with the switch. I now pump my wine from my basement...

    Getting fresh Juice for the first time - questions

    Agree with (Kraftty/Mike) on the extra buckets, I ferment in the buckets and usually empty about a 1/3 of the bucket into another. Put them on a tarp and let them go. I am thinking you are purchasing some Chilean Juice? Hope you are taking a highway!
