    bought my apple juice. I meant to buy 4 gallons but I bought 4 half gallons, and I had a lot
    going on toda...

    Would fermenting 6 gallons in a 6.5 gallon carboy be asking for a volcano problem or do you

    out by now. But my question is will this still be good? Last time we taste tested it awhile ago

    I can now answer my own question. The beer was flat and off flavor compared to what I had put
    in bottles. I'll have to track down these other caps or use teflon tape. Disappointed. Though
