- May 14, 2013Do you think you could accomplish the same thing by putting "green" spirit into an old (thoroughly cleaned, of course) wine bottle with oak strips or chips, then drawing a vacuum on the bottle with a VacuVin or similar wine preservation kit? This would eliminate having to carefully handle a hot glass jar.
For those unfamiliar, VacuVin is a bottle-sized rubber stopper with an embedded one-way air valve. A small hand held pump is used to suck air out of the bottle through the stopper. The theory being that air in an unfinished bottle of wine will spoil it faster. A basic kit with 3 stoppers and the pump typically runs $10-15.
