got the bungs!!!, racked the blueberry to 1 gallon jugs. this is the first time i've ever siphoned anything (me and hubby rofloao while we type this).
filled up a gallon and was going to wine bottles for top offs, but when we filled up 2 we decided to go for another gallon jug. now i have one full, beautiful gallon of blueberry wine and one 2/3 full. do i need to go to the wine bottles with air locks (got the small #2's ordered, too) or top this second gallon jug off with a like wine? i feel like i'm juggling wine, help!
(btw, i've labeled my gallon jugs #1 and #2, because i know #2 had more sediment and maybe some of my spit, too, still roflmao)

You can displace as Nikki said (Good job girl, you can comre out of the corner for awhile) or you can just wait the few days and transfre back to bottles to elevialte the missing volume.

My head has been spaced for years girl, I think you'll be fine.

I haven been in here much this weekend due to my large rummage sale.

I can't wait to be find out what Nikki did to go in the corner again.

You think she would have learned her lesson by now!!!

mad dash to dollar store...no marbles (thanks for the idea, jc)
beginning to think i don't have any either
what the h*ll, i topped it off with a rose/blush. consider jug #1 the "good jug" and jug #2, "the experiment".

I bet a "spit-blush" would be tasty.
