Default 1/6th sanke as fermenter

I recently acquired a 1/6th Sanke, which is approx 5.15 gallons. Combined with Derrin's awesome sanke fermenter conversion, I am thinking this will make a great fermenter. Here is the question - can I do a 5 gallon batch? I know the headspace is small, but with a blowoff tube could I make it work?

Fermcap from what I hear is a good match for your concern. Lots on lately about keg fermenters in the search function. Too much to list, but a ton of good information.

that sounds like a great solution. I'll give it a shot this weekend. My "potential fermenter" collection has gotten out of hand - 2 10 gallon cornies, a 15.5 sanke, a 5.15 sanke and the soon to be out of use carboys.
