I liked the Hennepin and thought the Abbey was pretty good too. I was pleasantly surprised with their Witte. They are a first class operation AFAIAC.

I know some of you purge with CO2 to prevent oxidation when filling - could that be it?
My bet is on it just being able to 'hold pressure' though.
I was gonna say - I don't like going to the dentist - but it sure beats a mouth full of false teeth!It depends on your situation. My teeth (gums, actually) had deteriorated so badly that there was only one place in my mouth where I could chew -- along with constant pain. I had gum disease all my life and brushing my teeth only made it worse. So, in one sitting, I had 22 remaining teeth removed, and replaced with full dentures. My gum disease is history. I can eat anything in any place in my mouth. The yellow teeth I used to expose when smiling are now perfect, white, natural looking teeth. In retrospect, it was the best thing I ever did. Plus, my general health from ridding my body of all that infection has increased amazingly – gum disease promotes heart disease. OK – would I rather have a mouth full of my own healthy teeth – of course I would, but the option I chose in my circumstances literally changed my life for the better.
I dont refrigerate it and we keep it around for about 6 months to a year, although I am sure refrigeration wouldn't hurt. Great stuff! It will add great flavor to all kinds of dishes. Try putting a little in Marsala sauce. Trust me. I usually get the medium sweet it is the one with the green label.
