Well,l it is that day. Today was spent scraping labels and cleaning bottle( been putting it off for weeks) because I am out of 6 gallon carboys,again. Instead of driving to Canada and buying another decided to bottle Malbec. Ya, Ya, Ya we have all been there. Should have bought the clean cases of bottles at brew store he had for 5 dollars a case. O well back to bottle washing:d

But then you would have paid money for something you can get for free and that my friend isnt wise unless you are a winery in which that isnt allowed or have 20 gallons to bottle.

The Italian restaurant down the road saves me bottles too. Never tell your friends you need bottles. I came home from work with the porch full several times. Last time I took all the ones I didn't want out to curb for recycling there was over 400. The recycling truck driver couldn't stop laughing as I helped him load them in. Asked if I thought about going to AA
