5Kg of rhubarb? or do you mean 5 Gallons (an FV), or 5 litres (a DJ)?
most advice is to pick the rhubarb in late spring/early summer, when the stalks are fully changed colour from green to pick/purple. then chop into 1cm pieces and freeze. at this time of year, the poisonous oxalic acid in the leaves is returning down the stems into the root, so it's not advisable to be harvesting rhubarb now that the temperature is dropping. There are other threads on rhubarb wine, with recomended amounts (I can't recall off the top of my head how much I used). a forum search for 'rhubarb' should find suitable threads.
