There are no mistakes in home brewing, just limited edition specials
I brewed up my first partial mash of the new house and I'm fermenting in a carboy. I've never done primary fermentation in a carboy. I usually use my bottling bucket, but I thought what the heck. Now I remember WHY I don't ferment in carboys. There really isn't enough headspace in a 5 gallon carboy for 5 gallons of beer to have a really active fermentation. Oops.
Its not a major problem, but I simply brainfarted. I'm sure the beer will be fine.
Anyone else have any "DOH!" moments?
