If you're starting to develop scratches in your primary, then it's time to think about replacing them. Scratched primaries are hard to sterilize, and poor sterilization compromises your wine.
Now if you're going to replace your primaries, consider this - the latest findings show that even standard food grade plastic primaries can leach chemicals. Here at THE HOME VINTNER, we don't carry standard food grade - it's just not acceptable. We carry the highest calibre plastic available on the market today, believing that top notch equipment will bring you that one step closer to your goal - top notch wine.
Our primaries come in the 30 litre size, and they're a procrastinator's dream! How do? Because they have a self contained rubber gasket and lid, complete with a bung and airlock, and a built in thermometer. So if you don't have time to deal with the wine today, our primary ensures that it will be fine until you get time (unlike some of those primaries with the ill fitting lids, or even a garbage bag pulled over the top!)
So have a good look at your primaries, and if they're scratched, then think about taking some "primary care".
