So am I the only one with 5 gallon and 3 gallon carboys? Mine are all glass so handling a 6 gallon would be waaaay to much for this gal! Do most people when making kits rack into a 5 gallon and a 1 gallon to top off at subsequent rackings?? I could put in 2 three gallon carboys but I don't know what to expect for loss or how many rackings I should expect. With fruit wine or grape from scratch I lose with each racking but am thinking "perhaps???" That the loss will be less with kits.
So what do you do? I appreciate your thoughts as I dabble in new territory!
6 gallon better bottle to be purchased! I love the glass (all to this point are) but no way I can lift 6 gallons full. I have so many empty carboys right now 4 - 5 gallon 3 - 3 gallon and 3 - 1 gallon that I know hubby is going to shake his head when he sees this purchase arrive! Hard to hide a box that big dropped off by UPS 😳 and yes I know why are there so many empty ones??? I said the same thing after my last racking - gotta fill some of them!! 😜
