Hi. I bought a 5 gallon home brew kit last year, and used it about 4 times before I put it away for the summer. I don't have a cellar and put it in the corner of my room to ferment, and it was just too hot in the house to do it year round.
But anyways, I don't have the space in my fridge to make another 5 gallons. I was thinking I could make maybe 3 gallons or less this time around. But is it ok to put 3 gallons in a 5 gallon carboy? Would there be too much air/space for it to work properly? Thanks for the help.
P.S. Coincidentally. I stopped drinking beer last year. I know, strange thing to do for someone that wanted to home brew, but I'm going to experiment with some things. Make small batches of beer or wine, find something that may get me back in the mood to drink. I found a recipe that uses frozen concentrated grape juice to make wine, sounded interesting.
