Since I've only got the space and equipment for one at a time, I just have one that I'll purchase about a month before the current one is finished that way I have time to think about what I'll do with that one.

Thinking about getting some 3 gallon stuff so I can do dessert wines at the same time.

Why do you refer to 3 gallon stuff for dessert wine a dessert wine is just sweeter than most. I had a sautern many years ago in the region of france i about threw up it was sweeter than raw honey.

I buy them as the funds allow... typically one or two at a time. I've got 9 six gallon carboys (8 with wine in them, one free for transfer) and do 9-12 months in bulk before bottling. So, It works out that I'm rotating one batch into the bottle while pushing the next into the carboy.

Alan - I think he means "on deck" as in "waiting to go next" (i.e. Kits that he has in his possession but hasn't yet started).

Also, dessert wines are typically 3 gallon kits, while the typical varietals of wine kits (cabs, merlots, chards, etc.) are 6 gallon kits.

I have an RJS EP Aussie Pinot Noir in the bottle and aging. Let me know if you’re interested in a bottle swap.

I would love to but my Pinot Noir is in the box it came in, so it will be awhile before it's bottled and even longer to drink.

I can't tell if you're kidding or not, but "on-deck" is most commonly associated with the baseball term, for the batter that is due to hit next. It originally started out on aircraft carriers, when a plane was brought to the flight deck (on-deck), prior to being launched. Baseball also borrowed the term "in-the-hole", for the player that is due to hit after the player that is on-deck.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't totally kidding, I believe Alan isn't from America and wouldn't get the baseball reference. It's a pretty common term to us from US and probably Canada. The term is very analogous to Incoming batsman in cricket.
