I found this 8.5 Gal bottle, Since all kits call for 6 gal, which Cab kit can I cheat on and make 2 - 5 gal batches?
I figure, out of the 10 gal batch, 8.5 can fill this one up plus a 1 gal, the remaining is usually lees anyway.
How do you move this when it's full? It has to weigh close to 90 pounds. A couple of weeks ago I lifted a 70 pound carboy from a chair to a four foot high table. It was getting a little bit heavy from where it rested at 3'4" to the top of the table. An electric pump syphon system would come in handy.
