Well folks, it’s march now and patio and cottage season is coming fast. And just as Izzy Mandlebaum tell’s Jerry Seinfeld… “It’s Go Time”! That means to it’s time to start ramping up production. There’s lot’s of options to fill your wine racks with- Table wines, Mist wines, Margaritas etc so don’t leave it until the last minute before you get your summer production rolling.
Maybe the best thing to do is to increase your production capacity. This can be done very easily by adding a few pieces of equip. If you are currently only making one wine at at time, all you need to get 2 going at one time is another pail and carboy. And ‘voila’ you’re producing 60 bottles instead of 30.
If need be you could get by with just as second carboy. You just have to stagger your production. Start one kit in the primary and transfer to a carboy then start the second kit. Just let the first kit wait another week in the carboy (assuring the wine and airlock is topped up) until second is ready to bottle. It really doesn’t take that much more time to bottle 2 kits over one… and the good news is you’re getting 60 bottles instead of 30!
