I am pretty new to wine making. I have bought equipment for 6 gal kits, but where can I get 1 or 2 gallon carboys. I dont want to make a 6 gal recipe until I get it just right. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

Your LHBS should carry 1 gallon jugs. Those along with a #6 stopper will do the job (and an airlock, of course). I don't recall seeing 2 gallon jugs, but I have several 3 gallon carboys, which I find perfect for small batches of beer and wine.

You can also find 1 gallon glass carboys with apple juice in them at any grocery store.

You can have them delivered. I like Midwest Supplies. I don't know where you live, but there are many, many supplies that ship their wares.

Check this link:

Another option for acquiring glass 1 gal jugs is Gallo wines. They are in most every wine section here. Run around 12.99 with a gallon of wine included. If you don't want to drink it you can rebottle it and use for topping off carboys.

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

midwest supplies is great! used to get all my stuff there until Mr. Steves Home Brew opened up just down the road. Although, I may still order from Midwest cause the guy at Mr. Steve's is arrogant, acts like any other brewing method except his is wrong!
