Same primary for wine and beer?

Hello, I thought that I would make a wine kit after years of extract brewing.

Can I use the same 7.9 gallon primary fermenting bucket for wine that I have used for beer fermentation? Would I get any off flavors? Sorry for the question on the forum, but I can never find exactly what I need to learn in the search. Thanks

Questions are what the forum is here for.

Your primary is fine for wine as well. Usually wine kits make 23l vol instead of 19-20l for beer kits (they are all made in Canada and use CAN 5 gal as a standard volume (23l).

Your 30l fermenter is perfect.

As long as you use standard sanitation practices you would not really run into any cross contamination issues.

Thanks for your advice!
