Elmer, you may want to think about lowering your carboy handle to the lower ridge on the neck.
I've seen them slip off where yours is. I'm just saying.....

I got moved last weekend without any casualties. I taped a layer of bubble wrap around each
carboy, used solid bungs held in with shrink wrap. I put all of the full bottles upside down in
cases, but d...

I ended up blending 75% niagara, and 25% concord. It has a very nice flavor and is not quite as

I've got a concord that I bottled in August of 2012. I also have a Niagara that has been very
