    Square Copper Non stick pan opinions?

    I am always amazed by the level of culiinary and chemical analysis skills this group has, so thought it would be a good place to ask for opinions on these pans. My main concern is knowing that copper when combined with wine releases a lot of copper. I ran wine thru copper pipe once to remove...

    disappearing print on posts

    Hi all I use an older version of Chrome, and about an hour ago this forum got weird for me. Like reading a post there would be entire sections that the print had almost entirely shrunk to nothing but a flat unreadable straight line. I found if I highlighted the area the print came back...

    Goldbeere Elderberry good wine?

    Hi all Has anyone made wine from Goldbeere Elderberries? I make mostly white wine, but I think throwing in some elderberries would upgrade some blends I've made in the past. I'd rather keep it looking white than blush, so Goldbeere would be my only choice. The price buying these bushes is...

    leaking fermenter, wine ok or not?

    I have determined that I have a leak in my 6.9 gal fermenting bucket. The last couple batches I did I thought I had a wicking problem with the cover cloth when it drooped into the top of the wine. But the last batch I made totally sticky grossed out the fleece blanket I had over the heating pad...

    actual ABV if ends at .992

    Hi you wonderful techie folks I do understand how to calculate ABV, but that seems to be based on wine ending at 1.00. I ferment to dry, and often hit .992. Does that mean my wine is slightly higher ABV than if it ferments to 1.00? Pam in cinti, gently buzzed from taste testing 2 carboys...

    I used the stabilizer wrong!

    Hi all Really a novice here and I just realized that instead of mixing the sorbate into cold water and then adding to wine I just tossed the measured dose of crystals into the top of the carboy. I did this just over a month ago to my first one gallon batches, Crangrape and Cranberry Orig...
