Been trying to move on from 5 gallon glass carboys, I only do quality kits and all grape wines now. For example when i do 3 lugs of grapes this gives me around 7 gallons of juice after pressing and secondary. I'd like to store it for 6 months before barreling it so I'd like to get some Spiedel tanks in various sizes but on there website they claim their containers have micro-oxygenation. I'm kinda wondering then if its a good idea to be keeping them in that container then for 6 months then another few months in a barrel. Right now I have my last grape wine finishing up MLF in a big mouth bubbler I usually use for my kits. However I know those units don't seal very well (they leak water when I'm washing them). I really don't want to use 6 gallon carboys + gallon jugs if I can help it. I plan on getting an 8 gallon barrel soon and this is even more of a quandary. Ideas?
