    Store in Gallons

    Gallons Thanks for the reply..How much can one drink..Lol depends When I make a kit, I generally bottle half of the wine in fifths, the rest in gallons, one to save space, then I keep a fifth bottle in the fridge, which I refill from the gallons, for my use.

    Store in Gallons

    Hi all, When I had the opportunity to make 'many' gallons of homemade from grapes, we had to store in 'gallon' bottles due to volume. Now that I must use kits, is there a downside to continue to store some of the wine in gallons, as opposed to fifth bottles?

    Chateau Joe, Yes it is the Calif Zinfandel Shiraz, The last few batches, I added enough water to give me 5 gallons and a fifth, and I really like the outcome, the last batch I 'topped off' got 6 full gallons, but found it just a tad watery. Not complaining, I shall still drink all of it~ this...

    WineXpert Red Zin/Shiraz

    Hi all, I have made several of these Kits, mostly pleased with the results. Can I ask, how much bottled water[ gallons] do you all add? When I add enough to produce 6 Gallons finished product, it's a tad watery, but 5 1/2 Gallons finished is quite good. Curious as to others experience.
