I totally agree !ibglowin said:John,
It may be heavier than air but its not like it weighs 3X as much. Its only 39% heavier than air at 0 degrees C. A gas wants to diffuse. Its what it does best. There is NO stopper that will hold a gas indefinitely. Changes in atmospheric pressure will push that gas out of the carboy over time even with a solid stopper. 1 week at best. And again, its better to TOP UP or RACK DOWN for long term bulk aging.
