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.
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.
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!
I have found 1 gallon jugs at garage sales cheap. Better yet, Estate sales! In fact, now I have more than I need because, for me, it's not really worth the bother to make 1 gallon of something. What if it is really good? You'll only have 5 bottles! The 1 gallon jugs are great for fresh apple juice when we press our apples, though!
