I stop by the landfill on my way home several times a week looking for 4 liter jugs. Not much success on the 4 liters. A number of 1/2 and 3/4 gallon juice bottles. And 750s, 1.5 liter bottles.
I get home tonight with a dozen or so bottles. With the bottles already in the basement I have more than enough to do label removal in my utility sink. It's a deep utility sink. I also have a single bowl sink.
Now you scaliwags, here is where you are a horrible influence. I think I need a third sink. What 58 year old man in his right mind needs 3 sinks!!! I do thanks to all of you. I can't say thanks enough for the help and influence you've been on me.

I went through a year of house shopping to find the right place that suited my winemaking needs. The wife wanted to choke me in my sleep several times!

It wasn't me that influenced you! I still do my fermenting and stabilization in the kitchen area and then carry the carboy down to the unfinished basement for bulk aging, bottling and storage. :(

I'm with you Bill. Ferment in a spare bedroom, haul out to kitchen to rack, etc. then either a. back to bedroom to finish or b. down to the basement.

@bkisel and @winenforfun, do we need to start a "go fund me" page for you two?

I think you may be onto something.

Nah, if I had a true designated winemaking area, Lord only knows how much I would make then. I make wayyyyyy more than I consume right now.
