    Bottling bucket vs (siphon) wand

    I have been testing a new 1 way check valve with a small bleed in it. This will help fill bottles alot faster - as the wine will only be inches away from the bottle filler when releasing the vacuum, instead of pulling wine all the way up from the receiving carboy.

    How to move 3 carboys into house and down into basement?

    I use the Allinonewinepump to transfer from the garage to the basement. All I need is a longer siphon hose.

    Bad Habits

    I was definitely guilty of looking on the floor and discovering the tape from the carboy came off and trying to rember which one it belonged to. I got so fed-up I made reusable labels to hang on the carboys now. = Reusable Carboy Tags - 2 sided –dry erase,permanent marker,grease pen I...

    Label printers

    Great information ! I have been looking into buying a special printer to do our labels and hopefully for past customers also . I agree that the label makes the wine - in the past I only used a simple address label to identify it.

    "Tips and tricks to using a whole house filter"

    On Friday, I used the 158116 housing with a P5 filter to filter three batches. I was able to get the hoses all the way onto the barbs this time, with nearly no air. Unfortunately, I broke one of the barbs trying to remove the hose because the fit was so tight. :slp I'm off to Home Depot to check...

    Headspace in carboy

    I will Flood the headspace with a heavier gas to displace most of the Air. I do this putting the fill tube of gas near the liquid height inside the carboy and let it flow (heavier gas should push the lighter gas upward). I do a rough calculation using a volume displacement method and then...

    Liquid Oak extract

    I make my own oak extract by adding alot of toasted oak chips with vodka in a mason jar and shake daily for 2 weeks. Once it is made up it can sit for a long time prior to using. Then do bench trials and add accordingly.

    Synthetic Corks

    Yes if the Nomacorc corks are scored they can be susceptible to oxidation. Push a cork thru and check it for scoring - no scoring no worries ! I heated up bottle wax and put some on top of the cork (after pushing the cork below the lip) this created an additional seal until I was able to...
