I gave your diy wine co2 recipe a jump start yesterday I also worked on the bottles, check valve, and sealant until everything was cured today so I was able to set up everything, within a few hours later and look here
Co2 is producing very nicely and rather QUICK (no joke, I could literally see small co2 bubbles rising a lot inside the bottle), the co2 pressure is really good (is it because of the summer heat? it's about 87-90 in the room where the bottle is kept) and diffusion is extremely taking lift off.. it's like I cranked up the PSI on a regulator, or up'd the BPS rate to a new all-time high.. Any thoughts on possible dangers of too high of pressure? A bit nervous about the glass bottle exploding! Lol
Should I be worried? Anyway, I had a dream I was sipping on the wine juice already the day after I started the recipe, which was yesterday night, no kidding lol.. Looks like I'll really have some later on. I used CranRaspberry juice concentrate by Ocean Spray. It isn't the super concentrated juice type, I just poured it all the way near close to the top leaving some space without adding water.. (is that okay?) I mean, we really need the juice to be concentrated, right? If I added 11.5 oz of it and added water, it would be rather light, eh? Let me know what you think. Anyway I hope you like my pics.
Really glad things are working out as planned.. I was afraid I might get a leak somewhere, but nope! So far, so good. Thanks for this idea, Drake. My new 2.5 gallon high tech, which I set up a few weeks ago, will benefit from the new wine co2 idea and me too. Good bye regular diy co2 haha.
