I making Red. Probably a Pinot Noir. That is the wife's favorite. I found two kits on Austins website, one that was 50, one that was around 90. I will probably go for the more expensive one, that is still around $3 per bottle. If you know of another Pinot Noir kit, please let me know.
I have all the racking canes from my beer making. I think I will do the primary in the ale bucket i have, do the secondary in the carboy i am buying, then rack it to the bucket, clean out the carboy and back to the bucket. That will save me buying a second carboy, as I could use my 5 gallon carboy but doubt I will lose a gallon of volume from the sediment that I eliminate. Does anyone see a problem with this? Am I taking a chance incorporating too much oxygen doing it this way?
