Dumb and easy noob question
The local supplier is bringing in their annual harvest along with other juices from CA, PA, and NY. The local stuff is priced at like $6 a gallon and I figure this would be a cheap way to make some decent wine from local vinyards.
Anyway, the kits all make 6 gallons. Do I need to make 6 gallons, or can I just use my 5 gallon carboys? If I use the 5 gallon carboys do I need to make 4 gallons, or can I just get 5 gallons of juice and let the yeast work it's magic?
Any help is much appreciated. (also posted question on winemakingtalk)
