I too have previously brewed beer(2 pale ales) in a primary only and then bottled.
This is my first time to use a 5 gallon primary carboy and then after 9 days, I racked it into a secondary ( a 6.5 gallon carboy).
Question is this. The carboy has a lot of head space and as far as I can tell is hardly bubling(the airlock doesnt seem to do much). Is there a chance that I will get oxygenation that will mess up the beer. I dry hopped this time and the hops just seem to sit on top of the wort.
Any help , advice, words of encouragement are appreciated.
