comment What is the best way to sanitize vanilla pods?
Vodka or Everclear would be a much better alternative to isopropyl. Something about intentionally adding poisonous compounds to to a drink scares me.

comment Adding Oak Flavor/character to beer
It might be covered under "staves and spirals", but I have heard to use toasted oak dowel rods. I am trying this right now in a Lambic.

comment Making wine from concord grape juice
The balloon is probably meant to be an airlock. I used to use a balloon as the airlock before I learned of better ways. I would cut a small hole in the top and it would let CO2 out, but no O2 in. When the balloon quit hissing as air left it, it was done fermenting.

Wow, Thank you for the response. That is a lot of baking soda. I think I will have to look into others means of carbonation.

comment How long do I need to maintain my fermentation temperature?
Thank you for the answer. Should the carbonation in bottles happen at the same temp as well or can I let them site outside the temp controlled freezer? My room temp is around 76-80 F
