He’s getting asking about Crushed grape volume for pickup containers. Not finished wine.one 5 gallon pail should hold about 15 lbs of grapes. normally a lug is 35 -36 lbs. it takes 12-15 lbs. for one gallon of finished wine. there are the basics do the math
Thanks for your reply. This gives me a rough idea of how many pails and space I'll need to transport.He’s getting asking about Crushed grape volume for pickup containers. Not finished wine.
Not exact science since diff grapes will vary. But x1 lug takes up about ~3.5gal of must.
Or another way is:
Grape lbs divided by 10 = gal of must
So your 540lbs = ~54gal must.
x11 pails theoretically.
But with 5gal pails I’d just do 1 pail per lug to keep it simple and easy to move around. Can always condense if needed.
