    Malolactic Fermentation

    Hello all, I need your help/advice. I have wines that are about one month past primary fermentation. I’m concerned my Reds did not complete malolactic fermentation, so instead of paying to have them tested, I’m just going to add more cultures. This is where my question lies… What if I take a...

    Thank you. Not a kit. Juice. I started in April timeframe. Racked from primary fern to carboy. Then again to degas and clarify. Then this last time to sit. Looking to bottle in September.

    Interesting that the temp and pressure will affect the air locks. I never thought of that. With that in mind over the last week the temp of my basement has risen 2 degrees and we have had on and off rain. Thanks.

    Cork Sanitizer or "Corkador"

    When you say squirt sanitizer solution near by what do you mean? And I should have said I don’t soak them. I sort of dip them in the solution. Is that still not a good thing?

    Cork Sanitizer or "Corkador"

    I’m a newbie here. Can you just take the amount of corks you need and put them in a StarSan solution for a few minutes at bottling?

    Filtering Wine

    A company that sells filters and filtering equipment says 2microns is basic finishing, but it takes a 0.5micron filter to remove ALL dead yeast and really polish the wine. I make Red & White and rack 3 times before bottling. Are those micron levels accurate? What’s your recommendation? Also was...
