I was wondering about consolidating my two batches of elderberry wine. It would make it easier to handle during the secondary and tertiary stages.

The wine was made with the same recipe and only one day apart.

What would be the advantages or disadvantages of doing this?

Thank you,

Primary: High Gravity's Desiree Cream Ale -
Welch's Frozen Concentrate Wine -
Strawberry Wine which is looking beautiful btw -
Apfelwein No. 4
Bottled and getting bubbly --> 3rd batch of Apfelwein
Bottled: Elderberry Wine --> Good Stuff!
Done and Drinking: Irish Stout, American Cream Ale, EdWort's Apfelwein, American Wheat Ale excellent now that it has aged, Raspberry wine: too wonderful for words! Red Ale

Pantry is getting crowded again

Well, there aren't really any advantages or disadvantages to speak of. If you need the carboy, or if you have a few extras of a certain size, it doesn't matter if you combine them or not. You just want to make sure you minimize any headspace in whatever size container you choose.
