I've started my first 5 gallon batch and after racking it to a glass carboy for oak aging I noticed that i seem to be getting some condensation on the inside of the carboy. I've been told that i should buy some glass beads or something to help fill this space, but for now I'm wondering if this is going to ruin the wine.

The goal is fill the carboy up to the neck and if it requires you to fill it with some cheap commercial wine do it. Filling with glass balls works too if you have enough. To much exposure to oxygen can definitely ruin the wine so act quickly.
