Whole Black Grapes are destemmed using minimal force that allows for more intact berries and less stems in the resulting must. 5 U.S. Gallons / 18.9 liters of must is then sealed into a food-grade pail and frozen to
-4 degrees Farenheit. This volume of must represents approximately 50 pounds of whole berries. Each pail, once thawed, fermented and pressed will yield between 2.5 and 3.5 gallons of finished wine.
We encourage all winemakers to make a minimum of 10 gallons of wine (4 pails worth). The reason is some pails contain grapes from a different location in a vineyard. This means TA% and pH will vary from pail to pail. Our recommendation gives you a more truer representation of the vineyard and the grapes produced.
Black Grape Must can also be frozen in a liquid-tight fiber drum to a weight of 425 pounds of must, enough to produce 30+ gallons of finished wine.
Whole White Grapes are bunch pressed into 5.25 U.S. gallons of cold-settled juice is frozen in pails. After thawing, fermentation and gross-lees racking, your yield will be at least 5 gallons of wine per pail.
White Grape Juice can also be frozen in drums in a volume of 46 U.S. Gallons or Intermediate Bulk Containers in a volume of 235 U.S. Gallons.
