Building a simple but elegant fermentation airlock. Cricket is teaching himself to make simple wine using basic equipment and supplies. The airlock keeps airborne mold and bacteria out of the fermenting container while the sugar in the fruit juice is consumed by yeast and then pooped out as alcohol and C02. The airlock allows C02 to escape while keeping the outside air out of the fermenter. Not originally my idea but I will share it with you.
So far my wine making efforts have resulted in very drinkable, high octane, adult beverages. Making a basic wine is actually much easier than I thought it would be.
Oh yeah: I’m now using more robust video editing software that plays better with my older computer and the learning curve is challenging me so this video may lack the polish of former videos that I’ve put out. It will get better though.
