I have 194 bottles stored, there is a bunch on deck. However it also comes off the rack fairly quickly as well.

Hi Tom,

I noticed that you are all by yourself in the 1000+ category. How long did it take for to get there?

I only have 70 bottles and 40 gallons in various stages of aging/fermenting. I think I am giving too many away. :slp

This is my first year bottling - so it is pretty low at the present time. I only have about 15-20 bottles left - gave too many away - but i guess that is a good sign.

I plan to make 18 more gallons this summer - which i should be able to bottle around 90 bottles from that.

Actually not long since I have fresh CA,Italian and Chilean juice available. Between that some kits and my Fruit wines I make I can do that in ONE YEAR. You see that is my "LEGAL" limit 200 gallons = 1,000 bottles.

It all depends on how many lushes you have living in the house and if you let the wine properly age.

I wasnt meaning you Tom! LOL. I was just stating that if someone drinks it all when they start its hard to build up. I know you dont rush anything to the bottle or you wouldnt need 60 carboys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
