    Cover primary at 1.00?

    For those who ferment to dryness in primary, do any of you put a lid on your tank around 1.00 sg? Thought process being, maybe there’s not enough co2 coming off to protect? Thx.

    Oak chips in primary

    I’d like to try this this year, but need to know how much to use... it’ll be in 15 gallons of Syrah, and 15 of Pinot, both of which will go into neutral barrels later...thanks, everyone!

    Natural corks, price vs value,

    Being one who is doomed to believing you get what you pay for, how can label peelers sell what they say is a high quality natural cork for a third of the price charged elsewhere? I need to get corks soon and would love to save the money, but color me sceptical.

    Wine just keeps binding all new meta

    Hope someone can help with this...this years Pinot noir had just been pressed and put in a stainless tank, and the next morning I find the lid popped off, tube was too big for the lid...was hoping to finish the last point of fermentation in tank, so no so2. Five days go by, it won't finish, so...
