Perhaps I'm missing something but if you put over 5 gallons of apple juice in to begin with in the 6 gallon carboy, how does it fit into the 5 gallon carboy for the 24 hour secondary period?

You will always lose a little bit to lees settling and more so from sampling the progress of the batch

I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied

Darn you UpstateMike! Now that I've read this thread, I have to go make a batch. Problem is, I already have 6 gallons of cider, 6 gallons of Welch's Grape wine, 6 gallons of quad berry skeeter pee and 5 gallons of skeeter pee fermenting. That fills all my carboys so I guess this will just have to go in a bucket.

Yes yes, I have issues.
