Steve, you sould get a 3 and a 1 gallon carboy. You do not want alot of air in the head space. Too much chance of getting bacteria in there.

Transfer after you've reached a s.g. of @1.000 and fermentation has stopped.

I always try to make a gallon more than what I want in the end. This way after I lose my lees and stuff I'll end up with enough to rack to clear and age and hopefully a little to sample along the way.

Chemically what will happen to process if somebody does not change the container (fermenting vessel)?
Use the same vessel for 2nd fermentation that was used in 1st fermentation.
I mean that not strain the wine (must).
Is this process possible or not?
