I think that void of oxygen is pretty important too unless you can purge the container with nitrogen.

There are no down sides to this method and as I stated before for a beginner you see all the process without the cost and as a mixer for a full kits you need to think outside the box, without over thinking the process.

Those 1 gallon kits are a smart way to save and explore.

ĄThink for a moment if you're a kit maker,I have enexpensive kit,say a melody 6 gallon kit and wanted to blend it with a sharaz,I could in fact blend them together or element some of the Merlot if so no matter how you cut it it then becomes part of the craft of blending.Cost if I thought about the cost of this hobby over my entire time in it I would go to the nearest store and buy wine,so that doesn't come into play.I guess it's what style of wine making your use to .A full blown grape wine maker's or a kit maker's we all like to play with our Wine.

I'm sorry but I can't see the point buying a 6 gallon kit and making 6 one gallon batches unless one wants to make them all different. Same amount of work for one gallon as doing 6; probably more.

That does sound non productive, if you had the time and we're willing to experiment,you could us that method as a process for seeing how one wine style is effective with 6 different yeasts.

It's just as much work to make 6 gallons as it is to make 1 gallon. The reward is 6 times better...
