ur thinking of 48 proof which is 24% alcohol. I use to work at a beer distributor and was blessed to try some of the worlds best craft beer including a bottle of utopia which is pure awesome.
i am just using bakers yeast beacuse i have no local access to beer, wine, or chapagne yeast.
this is basically my recipe, http://www.warpbreach.com/6/6.html
so u see, its a really cheap wine that does taste better than the cheap wine u can buy in the stores.
there is one thing though, Duvel is this awesome beer that has a special Belgian yeast that can with stand alcohol at least at 10% and higher. i still have a good bottle and all i have to do is take the yeast at the bottle. i know its dead but theres still some alive which i can use to culture and use for my co2 reactor and ta da! Belgian yeast wine! although that might taste pretty bad
hoppycalif, i don't think need a relief valve because its only a gallon containter. but whats this needle valve? it only works in combination with the relief valve?
so far, im going to get a drop checker, a ph test kit, a proper diffuser, and a bubble counter.
what do u guys think about these? I have a 29 gallon tank http://cgi.ebay.com/Brand-New-Drop-C...sid=p1638.m122
don't know if this is the right size for me, all sizes say for 55 gal tanks http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-of-2-CO2-Dif...QQcmdZViewItem
trying to find a cheap ph and hardness kit, this is a tank for CRS, and i already made a bubble counter. i had to make a bigger one since i need this water to absorb any of the extra organic compounds from the wine
I promise to get some pictures when im done setting up!!
