Topping Off

You want your carboys to be as full as possible (with a couple of inches at the top).  In this case, we are using a 6 gal. carboy.  They come in 3, 5 and 6 as far as I know but I am sure there are others.  My 144 lbs of grapes produced just over 6 1/2 gals.   So I completely filled a 6 gal carboy and have about 1/2 gal for topping off that I store in a plastic container.

If you don't have extra wine for topping off, you can top your carboy up with a finished wine of a similar vintage, or another finished wine.
