How many pounds of grapes or how many crates of grapes can you fit in a 350L tub and a 189L tub?

Three lugs of grapes (36 lbs each) will yield around 10 gallons of must. There’s 3.79 liters in a gallon, so 108 lbs yields 38 liters. That’s 2.84 pounds per liter.

Interesting...how will you go about fermenting them...? Will you ferment inside these tubs themselves or in smaller carboys etc...? Would love to know more. Secondly, how long will you keep the grapes in this tub..? Pardon my queries...I'm really a newbie here..

He is fermenting in the tub. He will probably ferment until it's finished (7 to 14 days), then transfer to a barrel

I ferment right in the tubs, this season they were 10 days in the tubs, before going dry .99 S.G. on the hydrometer. I than pump the wine into the Stainless Steel VC tanks and rack the gross lees off after 2 days. We yielded 217 gallons of wine from the 4 tubs.
