New at making wine...please help.
I am in the process of making my first batch of wine. I need some advice quickly.
I have a 6 gallon primary fermentor and a large 6 gallon glass carboy.
My question. I am making peach/raspberry wine. I have 1lb. raspberries and 6lbs peaches. The recipe for my 6 gallon primary indicates 13 lbs of peaches. BUT...can I cut the batch in half and only add say 3 gallons of water to my primary fermentor?
Please understand this will be my first batch of wine and I don't know if the extra space in my fermentor and eventually my carboy will ruin my wine. In fact I'm not sure I know what I'm doing at all the recipe I have is very vague.
Thank you for any advice you can provide.
