The Unappreciated 3-Gallon Carboy

I’ve got a little over eight gallons (30 liters) of pressed Merlot that needs to be racked soon. What do you rack eight gallons of wine into? A 5-gallon carboy and three 1-gallon jugs would work, but the best way is to use a 3-gallon (11 liter) carboy. You don’t hear as much about the 3-gallon carboy as you do about it’s big brother. There are many times it could have made my life easier though, and I think it’s finally time to add one to my roster of winemaking equipment.
