I'm currently brewing red raspberry wine.
I am brewing 6 gallons of wine.
The Primary holds about 8 gallons, which I all I have room for.
Unfortunately the volume of the 20lbs of raspberries I am using has a volume of a few gallons. Due to the large volume of raspberries, in order to allow room for the krausen, I was only able to add about 4 US gallons of the full 6 Gallons required.
I am planning to add the remaining 2 gallons of water to the secondary, and rack onto it. I will cool the boiling water to fermentation temperature before racking the wine onto it.
Are there any problems with doing this?
