    Thanks, I’ve posted this question in different venues and this is the most convincing I’ve seen. Thanks

    Mildew on inside of cork?

    I'm assuming you mean an old bottle of wine? It was bottled about a year ago.

    Mildew on inside of cork?

    I’m not sure if this is mildew on the inside of the cork or not? No odors and the Chardonnay tastes great but when I give away bottles I’m afraid it might freak someone out. #1) Does it look like mildew and #2) If I want to re-cork do I risk oxidation? Thanks!

    Starting specific gravity

    UPDATE: I just talked to the manufacturer and the markings on the side of the bucket are US Gals. They said I still can add more water. Now my question is can I add water 5 days after I added the yeast or should I leave it and when it's ready rack it into a 5 gal carboy? Starting S.G. was 1.104

    This works well

    I just did 30 bottles today with Oxiclean and it worked very well taking off labels and the glue.

    Customizable online wine label sight.

    Looking for a free customizable online wine label sight that I can create to turn into vinyl labels.

    Starting specific gravity

    Yes, with a 6 gal wine kit I only filled the bucket to the 5 imperial gal mark. I'm thinking their marks might be off.

    Starting specific gravity

    Thanks for the comment :) I'm thinking the markings on my bucket may be off. They are also imperial gals. This was my first batch and I didn't verify the markings.

    Starting specific gravity

    Hi, I have a wine kit and my starting specific gravity is 1.104. It came with EC-1118 yeast. Will fermentation start with this?

    WineXpert Using less water in a kit

    Would you follow the same kit instruction as if you were using the full 27 litres for the 19 litres?
