Oh, and I'd use the whole packet of yeast. That is what I have done for my single gallon

secondary. The v...

Sure- but what's the advantage then? It would still be hard to stir and take out fruit. The
reason for covering with a towel is to make life easier on removing fruit, adding things,
stirring down the ...
