    Sleeping in a room where wine is being made

    I have no knowledge on wine making or wine in general, this is my grandfather’s hobby. For around a week now I’ve been staying with my grandparents. I’ve been sleeping in their spare room where my grandfather likes to make wine in a barrel (around 5 litres). For the past two days, I’ve had an...

    Possible experiment

    Shout out to any engineering or chemistry majors who also brew My question was, what would happen if you would chain the co2 output of one fermentating batch into the fluid of another? Doing this in series so that each new container has more co2 bubbles flowing through it than the last. What...

I always thought that we were removing CO2 when degassing, but this video said that the small bubbles that exit the wine first are sulfur dioxide gas bubbles. The bigger bubbles that exit after the SO2 are the...

    Do you like the taste of CO2 ?

    This question likely excludes the wine snobs and anybody that only knows how to make wine kits from start to finish without interruption. But I wonder who else likes the taste of a strong wine with the flowing gases of CO2 as part of that mix. I think it's just an added benefit.. not so...
