    Brewing bottle vs Brewing bucket

    I currently have an issue with to few (empty) bottles and some wines which have to be made. I do have two 20L buckets, but i have always thought buckets were less good, as there is more space for air/oxygen, which is bad for the wine. Will it greatly affect the wine (negatively) or can I use...

    leaking Fermentation lock

    I'm making 30L of wine and during my holiday (3 weeks) it has been fermenting. When I returned home, I noticed that one lock had an equal water level, meaning fermentation would be over, the other were still fermenting though. After some good inspection, the level of wine in the one that was...

    Hydrometer value 996, but still fermenting

    One more question, I followed the recipe so after fermenting I stir it for a few times waited and repeated that for 2-3 times. But reading on the internet this is maybe not enough to get the CO2 out of the wine. Can I after the wine has cleared stir more and for how long should I be doing this?

    Can I use my dishwasher to steralize bottles?

    My dishwasser can go up to 70 degrees celsius, it that enough to clean my bottles or should I stick by hand cleaning them? I'm planning not to use soap, just the hot water.

    Hydrometer value 996, but still fermenting

    I'm making my first wine from grapes and i'm using a kit for this. After 7 days the fermenting should have been done, but it could take up to 2 weeks to complete (depending on temperature and such things). Well those 2 weeks have passed and there were no bubbles left in the wine and in the...
