Since I have no 6 gallon carboys left, would it be ok to rack into a 5 gallon carboy, and the remainder into a gallon bottle, adding sterilized marbles to reduce headspace? I know it probably is a stupid question, but thanks to you guys I'm learning, thus coming up with new stupid questions.

Your not kidding. The thought of not always having something fermenting is driving me nuts. I just didn't want to buy another carboy if I could use what I have.

A friend of mine who is a UPS driver actually say someone throwing out 4 glass 5 gallon carboys and asked me if I wanted them. HELL YEAH I said. If I can't use them to make wine, then I'll use them to start brewing beer. Now that I know I can use them for wine, than SWMBO will have to get used to more kits around the house. :)

Madriver,

I'll be heading to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton sometime this summer. Are you close to that?

I am probably 2 1/2 hours from Canton. It takes me 2 1/2 hrs to get to Cleveland so something similar.
