    Bottling force carb'ed wine?

    OK, I am going to start out with a disclaimer, what I am suggesting is going to be controversial, so if your sole purpose is to tell anyone not using traditional methods that they are being an idiot, Please just move on... HOWEVER, constructive thoughts and work-arounds would be GREATLY...

    Cancel culture DOES serve a purpose, Personally I am a Baby Boomer, and I laugh at all these virtue signaling children... as someone earlier said "my money, my choice." I had not heard of these kits until now, and the marketing you fools give companies like this is invaluable. Sure, other...
