    Is there something as too many lees?

    Meh, I'll give it a daily spin and see how it goes. I gave it a quick spin yesterday like Atribune mentioned yesterday and not much moved. Seems like it is glued to the wall. @Mud: I'll check it out when I get home. I'm not sure if the instruction booklet will give that info...

    Hi there from East Lyme, Conn.

    I'm really not sure how must the carboy can hold... I know for sure the bucket is 6 gals. We'll see, I'm sure it'll taste ok and do its job :O). I'll adjust this after clearing with a similar wine like Tom mentioned... The kit calls for Water but I don't know about that...

    Carboy + sunlight?

    Team, Should my carboy be sitting in a dark room like the basement or it is fine in the dining room (facing south) where occasional sun comes through? Thanks !
