Well I seem to be running out of primaries here… but I am brewing an all grain ocktoberfest lager this weekend, pitching the crap out of it with 3 packets of wyeast 2633, 2 in starters now, the third will probably be just direct pitched.
My question is how much activity do you think I will have in the primary regarding the krausen etc. My 6.5 gallon bubbler still has my Irish red ale and I was thinking of leaving it a bit longer (it will be two weeks on saturday but wanted to leave it a bit longer to ensure its all cleaned up), and I don’t want to use a bucket as I wanted to be able to see the fermentation occasionally. So… I do have a 6 gallon glass carboy I had bought when my son was making a batch that needed fruit puree in the secondary, so I could use that if it will allow enough headspace for whatever activity there will be. I would estimate somewhere between 5 and 5.25 gallons going into the primary. Maybe its too tight… what do you guys think?
