Placed my pre-order today for a bucket of Cabernet Franc and also a bucket of Pinot Grigio. I will pick it up May 11th from Consumer Produce in the Strip District. Looking forward to getting away from a kit product and going to fresh juices. I will likely order again in the fall when the get other juice in.
What is the average yield from Juice buckets after racking etc if one were to use a 5 gallon carboy and a 1 gallon jug vs a 6 gallon carboy. What's lost due to lees? I realize this can be topped up with a like wine. Just curious of the output if I didn't top up?
Whoo Hooo I can't wait.
Doug, this past season my Regina buckets were close to the lid. I had a lot of juice. Usually I had received 5 1/2 gallons after fermenting. This works out great since after the wine cleared, I racked the 5 and the 1/2 gallon together for a full 5 gallons to bulk age and had a little extra to sample.
