    question about cleaning bottles

    I brought my bottles to my local wine store to get them cleaned. As it turns out my wine is not ready to bottle yet. Should I get them cleaned again when I go to bottle? I'm hoping to bottle it in a few days. I could always rinse them with really hot water or something. Ha I don't know.

    Best conditions for storing wine?

    Hi! I was wondering what are some of the best ways to store wine in bottles. My guess is a cool and dark place on their side. I'm such a newbie though. Around what temp is ideal?

    What do you put in a airlock?

    Hi all. I'm making my frist batch of wine. I seen a few people put sanatizer in their airlock but then I also read that you should only use water. Is one better to use then the other? I am brewing my wine in a "fastferment". I don't know if that makes a difference on what I should use
