I am toying with the idea of putting the grain bag full of skins and bits in my mash tun and pressing the heck out of it to get the most yield. The only available carboy is 6 gallons and i have 5 gallons of must including the bag o bits.
is this advisable or should i top up with some more grape juice and add dissolved sugar to match gravity with the current reading?
You should have as little head space as possible in your secondary.
1. Get a 5 gallon carboy
2. Top off with juice
3. Top off with a similar wine
Adding a gallon of water or simple syrup is too much.....
