If I were to rack a gallon out at a time, what would be the concern as far as oxidation? Should I just bottle all of it at the same time and let the individual bottles age or would it benefit more from aging at a greater volume?
I personally like to use the Big Flip top bottles for cider, You can sit down and sip on them and you dont have to carry around the 1 gallon jugs, However if you want the jugs, Northern Brewer have them for 4 bucks a piece, And I would not worry about Oxidation with cider I splash the hell out of mine and never have and problems.
