comment Degassing wine - how to proceed
thanks for resurrecting this bad boy. I also spoke to the proprietor of my LHBS and they suggested adding a campden tablet, which apparently absorbs oxygen as part of its function of preventing fermentation. Other than that, it's still on the shelf. I'll post findings back when I test it.

for the sake of disclosure - I just posted the same question on the forums at Northern Brewer, where I bought my kit. I will report back with details.forum.northernbrewer.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=110294

comment What software do most brewers use?
+1 for beer tools pro - also would like to mention that it can open .rec/BeerXML files. It's my choice for software on the Mac.

comment Carbonation Drops vs. Sugar?
I am a fan of carbonation drops, especially if I'm only bottling part of a batch. I think they're worth the extra cost. upvote
