I made a 3 gallon batch using left over ingredients and some honey. I have no idea how this beer will turn out, but I’d like to dry hop it with the half ounce of Falconers Flight I have left over from the flameout addition I made to it before fermenting.
Anyway, I’d like to get it off the cake and into a secondary but I realized that my antique 3 gallon carboy won’t take the same bung as my 5 gallon does. Will it hurt it to secondary in the 5 gallon carboy? I know some of you will probably tell me to leave it in the bucket but I’ve got to free it up for something else. Also, if I remove the lid to toss in the pellets for DH (there by releasing my protective layer of CO2, I’m effectively doing the same thing as putting it in a 5 gallon carboy with the airspace… ya know?
Unless you guys think I can get way with a piece of tin foil or something on the 3 gallon carboy instead of a lock and bung?
Thanks for any advice! :cheers:
