Hi Guys. I’m brand new to this great forum and to brand new to wine making. I have my first ever 30 Bottle kit in primary FV and it’s bubbling away nicely. I was intending to rack to my 23 litre PET carboy and bottle once stabilised and cleared. However the majority of you guys strongly recommend bulk aging even for cheaper kits. I need to build up some drinking stock ASAP so I can consider better kits and some fruit or real grape attempts. Money is a bit tight at the moment so was limited with my starting equipment choices hence the PET Carboy and not glass. My question is this. Should I age for a few months in the PET CARBOY (this will stall starting my next batch) or bottle sooner and get another on the go? I will get more storage/making equipment but probably not this side of Christmas. Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer a struggling Brit.
