I already did activate the yeast in the begining by hydrating them. The mixture is working and I am producing bubbles for the moment.
The bubble counter is very important because incase if I have a back flow, the tank water goes into the bubble counter and not my wine. Also not the other way around. I have made very cheap wine like this before just for fun. And it works and does taste great.
But your right. I think there is a leak in my bubble counter. I attached a air pump to thbe bubble counter and not all of the air is going into the diffuser.
Right now its in a cool room at 68 degress, which I find is the best for the inital fermentation, and I'm having around 4 to 8 bubbles a second. So I'm really going to try and find that leak tommrow.
I have seen more than one bottle for a glass diffuser but I figured having a gallon with a large surface area would be sufficent. Do 2 smaller bottles produce more co2 than a large one? Also I was afraid to use the T connector because I heard it leaks more than anything.
