I would say... take this...

and divide everything by 5

Or just make a 5 gallon batch for good times.

new brew, Take my advice and just do the 5 gallon batch...if you or your friends like good lemonade it will NOT last long.... I have 10 gallons going right now and planning 10 more asap.

To piggy-back... It's also a really really cheap batch at 5 gallons.

To make a 5 gallon batch, how big of a carboy would I need? 6 gallon?

I buy my lemon and sugar at ALDI, so a 5 gallon batch costs me under $12 and that includes the bottle caps at a penny each. I often use a slurry from another wine to start the batch, so there's no yeast cost and I buy the ingredients in bigger packages which seems to be much cheaper/dose than the little bottles. I bottle in 12 ounce beer bottles, so the cost is less than 25cents per bottle. Officially, 12 ounces is probably two standard servings of wine, so that brings it to 13 cents a serving.

Hi i'm new to the whole wine making process. I've purchased a 64oz. container of Welch's Concord grape juice that I want to use as a starter. Do you or anyone you might know can give me a few pointers on how to begin?
