Thanks Wade for you help.

I have seen an attachment to a single bottle but it was a long time ago.

I have been searching the web with little success.

i was kinda wondering this to. Not to make a sparkling wine for storage but to consu,e right away. I was thinking more like the seltzer sprayer you see clowns on TV using. Would this same thing work for wine, water, whatever? Know what I mean?

Thanks Tom,

It looks simple enough. Any thoughts on carbonating wine in a 2 liter bottle and transfering it to a champagne bottle and corking it?

Time frame for carbonitation? Minutes, days, two life times. :)

The key is get it as cold as possible. Crank the CO2 pressure to 50psi. add,shake,repeat till you get what you need = done.
You will lose to much transferring it to a bottle

I would not try transfering this from one bottle to another as like Tom said you will lose way to much carbonation.

Gift of the gods

Tom,

You are a wealth of information, tks again.

I have reviewed the U-Tube on making a carbonator. My thinking now is to see if I can drill a plastic champagne cork wired to the bottle and follow his proceedure.

My My how things evolve. I would how long it took our ancestors to discover fermentation was a gift of the gods?
