Hello everyone.
In the next few weeks I have a peach wine that will end fermentation. Its in a 6 gallon carboy and its a 5 gallon batch.
What should I do to reduce head space while I wait for it to clear?
or do I not need to worry and just leave it.
Yes I am a Noob so lots of silly questions. I know about marbles. But really I want to know how much space is to much after fermentation drops off on a fruit wine.
I would like to know all options.

thanks.

Head space

Just keep checking the sg till it is fermented dry .099 or lower. That's the time to get it into a 5 gallon carboy, stabilize, degas and leave with no head space. Imho
