    You're going to have an oaky Rose when you take it out of the barrel.Really? I rinsed w/Hot
    water and let it sit for 1/2 day and the water was clear. I'm monitoring that and will take it

    carboy and a half full 3g carboy (lost almost 3.5g to gross lee's in this total 11g batch).
    There will be ...
