    I am trying to edit my post - have no idea how to do that (this forum is a little tricky!) so I will just add to this thread I started... If you want the videos to see the unit working, please send me a PM and I will email them to you. I find this site a bite difficult to navigate - or I'm just...

    For Sale Vinmetrica SC-300 - used only few times

    I will get shipping costs to Virginia (I'd need you address or at least a zip). But before I do that, are you still interested at $350?

    For Sale Vinmetrica SC-300 - used only few times

    If like $350. This would include shipping if it's not anything crazy (anything over $25 I'd ask for a bit more) it's light so I can't imagine it'll be much more than that. The unit come complete and hasn't been used much. I have pics. I'll post

    For Sale Vinmetrica SC-300 - used only few times

    Hey folks, I bought a Vinmetrica SC-300 about 4 years ago. I have barley used it. The reagentswere stored in a cool dark room and I still have a fair bit left in each bottle. I just find I don't have the time to do the testing on my batches. I've scaled back my wine making too. I can email you...

    WineXpert Using less water in a kit

    I did this recently... in Jan. I added about 2 litres (1/2 gal) less than was is called for in the instructions. I tried it with the Merlot. From early taste tests I can tell the alcohol is up and the taste is more concentrated, more rich. It's better for sure...

    Considering the All-In-One pump...

    Folks, you sold me on this... I did visit the site shortly after cmason1957 posted.. i was in a funny spot in my house where the wifi sucks... I am afraid fto find out what it's going to actually cost me as I am in Canada! I'm sure he ships here.. I have ordered lots of stuff over the years from...

    Considering the All-In-One pump...

    On #4 do you mean there's a model that racks (and not just fills bottles) for an additional $30? I tried visiting his site, but can't seem to open it... and is it true that O2 entering into the wine is minimized? thanks!

    Considering the All-In-One pump...

    how much of a difference does this contraption make? Please let me know the advantages over more conventional siphoning.. This would cost me well over $300 (Canadian dollars) with shipping assuming they ship here.

    Potassium sorbate

    This sounds simple enough.. Got to admit, winemaker81's method went over my head! So once you stirred in the glycerin and you know it's dissolved completely, do you then bottle immediately after this?

    Potassium sorbate

    Thanks... I'll add a bit at a time. Taste as I go. I believe 1 to 2 oz per gallon. I'll start with under 1 oz

    Potassium sorbate

    Good idea. I ordered some from Amazon. I'm going to trial some with a gallon first. Does the glycerine take immediate effect ? Or am I letting it sit fir a while ?

    Potassium sorbate

    thanks.. i wonder what the shelf life is once opened... I posted the question on Amazon.

    Potassium sorbate

    this should work? Vegetable Glycerin (250ml) USP Food and Pharmaceutical Grade - Non GMO - Sustainable Palm Derived - Highest Purity, Humectant, DIY, Moisturizer, Tinctures, Extracts : Amazon.ca: Industrial & Scientific

    Potassium sorbate

    Thanks... the only thing with that is that it is a massive amount... I only make about 25 t0 30 gallons per year. Does it stay shelf stable for a long time?

    Potassium sorbate

    As far as glycerin goes, I'd like to add some but don't know what brand to use. On Amazon there's lots of economically priced vegetable-based glycerin. As these suitable for wines?
