Just curious if anyone sees a big issue with the following plan. I think it should work, but I'd love comments with those with more experience.
-Brew 5 gallons lambic
-Transfer to 5 gallon glass carboy
-Add yeast/bugs and mix
-Transfer .75 gallons to a 1 gallon jug, add stopper and airlock to both fermenters
-After a week or whenever it looks like things have calmed down/gravity is dropping more slowly, rack contents of jug back to carboy.
The reason for this is that I don't have a 6 gallon carboy, I usually primary in 6.5 gallon buckets and secondary in 5 gallon carboys, but lambic is better off not moved off the trub from what I can tell. I am looking to switch to better bottles anyway, so I'd like to use my glass 5 gallon for this since it'll be put away for at least a year. Is there any reason I shouldn't do this? Thanks!
