Awesome. I got a bunch of each so I can have several different small batches going at once. Now I just need some carboys of varying sizes.

I did a little dumpster diving for Carlo Rossi jugs, which I just couldn't stand to drink more of that wine. I also have a couple of growlers (1/2 gallon size) and a few 1.75 L wine bottles (those need a smaller stopper, though). I also have several three gallon carboys. The only thing I've never seen is a two-gallon carboy.

That is some cool glassware. A great size too! I'd love to have four or five of those sitting around with bubbling airlocks, just to give the place a "mad scientist" look...

Update: the mulberry wine is insane. Better than most grape wines IMO. The honeysuckle is a little bitter, maybe the fruit peel made it taste "pithy." However, it still has a decent taste.
