Default Bottled 5 Gallons of Apfelwein in 1 hour flat!

OK, I lie, I didn't bottle, I Boxed. Is that tacky? I bought empty wine boxes and bags online. They were the cute 3 liter ones though, not the chuggin wine 5 liter boxes you see from Franzia and ilk.

What do you think? Tacky or No? BTW, this is uber refrigerator freindly

Can those bags deal with the carbonation?

Mine is not carbonated. I don't add sugar at bottling time. If you are asking if it can handle the gases / then yes. Mine are quite gassy as I have no way to degassify. BTW, the place I bought them was emptywinebox.com

If anyone has a coupon code please share as I will be ordering more of them, but higher quanity for the price break.

That's a cool idea! How heavy is one after "bagging" it? I'm thinking it might be nice (if not to heavy) for a little backpacking trip coming up....

According to google calculator, 1 liter weighs 2.2 lbs. so ~6 lbs? They aren't that heavy...

Tacky? Yes, IMO... Doesn't mean it's not a viable solution though. Just not something that I'd be inclined to do...

Der..that makes sense! I didn't think to figure it up that way. Thanks btw.
A little too heavy for lugging around on my back I guess though. Although it would get lighter every night

I wouldnt be so quick to judge boxed wine.

http://www.roanoke.com/food/goodlibations/wb/248042

"Yes, the much maligned box, the container associated with such abominations as Chillable Red and saccharine Sangria. Today vintners are packaging premium wines in boxes because they offer great value and keep the wine fresh while you drink it. "

I have looked for a while for a way to do wine in a box at home. Where did you find the bags?
