    IMO, If you're doing a simple brew (without secondary flavoring) a secondary is optional. A
    Secondary Will:+ Reduce the Chance of Gushers, Bottle Bombs, and Over Carbonation if you Carb
    in the bottle ...

    them from some bannans I bought at a farmers market. dont' worry about the bubbles in the
