So have you decided to do a 6 gallon batch or staying with the 1 gallon batch?
The only issue I've had doing smaller batches is that some measurements get really small for adding to your wine. Example Reduless is a additive to get rid of a H2S smell and taste. For a one gallon batch treatement you have to weight out .5 grams and to do that you need a digital scale. Not a big deal but it's something to consider but... Here's hoping you don't ever need to use Reduless.
I'm gradually scaling up but still staying below those 5 and 6 gallon batches - All my wines are fruit wines and I just don't drink that much wine. Waiting for my 3 gallon carboys to arrive today and each will give me 15 bottles of wine. For my family and friends that's plenty.
Best wishes whichever route you take.
