Depending on who I'm talking to, you're not, or you aint.

"you're not" felt more natural but I believe it depends on the person.

I'd say it depends on the situation/context its being used in but both can be appropriate. I use a lot of contractions when I am just talking normally to someone.

"you aren't" is easier for me, since the tongue position for 'r' 'nn' and 't' is relatively close.
"you're not" - that silent 'e' tends to either become vocalised or take the 'r' with it when it's silenced- either "yur-uh-not" (almost 'urine knot") or "you not" when talking quickly.

I suppose if you have an accent where 'r's are made quieter - like much of the US northeast, "you not" would be much easier, however- since vocalised 'r's in those accents tend to be pushed towards the front of the mouth, instead of left in the middle.

"you're not" rolls off the tongue easier for me, but I still kinda use both interchangeably, depends
