    Thanks for the replies! I racked into the carboy yesterday and started the MLF. I plan on bulk again for at least 6-9 months, and will monitor those bubbles in the mean time. Hopefully between now and then I'll get a testing kit and have some peace of mind when bottling. I'll add some K...

    Stubborn label glue removal mistake?

    Hey all, I was hoping to get some guidance on my first wine making/bottling venture. I have a batch of wine just about ready to bottle, and have been gathering used bottles to cut down on the expense. I was able to get the labels off very easily by filling the bottle with boiling water...
