If you use the proper sized cube (unlike The Pol
), or are looking to store any longer than overnight, yes, you do try to squeeze all the air out before sealing.
As Pol mentioned, he only chills overnight and pitches a day later, and uses the container to ferment in as well. My original project (which has been postponed temporarily due to hectic schedule, which ironically was the reason i wanted to start this project
) would be to hot pack and store the wort, to be fermented days, weeks, or even months later. To do this you do not
want the head space in your cube, and do
want to squeeze all the air out.
