I think it might work if we could all ignore trouble makers so they didn't appear on the thread and if we all stopped talking about it.

I don't understand how it works Bee, but you ferment it right out and bottle it. Then when you open the bottle there's a bit of a fizz. I never had any problems with it and it might be that the fizz doesn't happen til the cork comes out.

Someone more knowledgeable might explain it for us.

I haven't made wine for years. There was a time when 5 or 6 5 gallon drums were fermenting at once.  I never tried plum though Bbee. Some of my best were gooseberry and oakleaf (not together), both of which had a secondary fermentation, and sugar beet some years (other years it refused to clear)
