Greetings all, newbie winemaker in Atlanta here. This may not be news to you folks, but my local brew store can't find a supply of gallon jugs at reasonable costs, so he won't stock them. But while rooting around the clear glass bins for recycling behind the local Whole Foods grocery, I found a gallon juice jug for Organic All Natural Apple juice. Pastuerized, no preserves. Went in and found same item on shelf, $6.99.
If you like apple cider, that's 5 gallon jugs and five gallons of cider for $40.00 including table sugar. I may be filling my third carboy, the 6.5 gallon one, within two months. I figure right now I am practising the practical arts of winemaking before the summer is upon me and I am up to my ears in fruit, so I have 3 gallons of wine from frozen concord grape concentrate(pitched 03-06-05) and 5 gallons of Frozen Apple Juice Concentrate (03-21-05).
Jeeze this is addictive, no wonder my tee totaling granny limited herself to 4 20gallon batches of wine per year.
