Well, even using 71b, I am using 1.5lbs of honey so I assume the fermentation would finish fairly quickly, 3 or 4 weeks should be enough. I should only need to rack twice, once on the fruit and once...

ErinRae said you have local brew stores, I suggest taking a look there first as shipping glass can be expensive. You should be able to pick up a couple 1gal glass jugs for fairly cheap.

hmm, any input on the above post I made last week? Should I rack it into a secondary for some bulk aging or leave it alone to clear more? I am just wondering because it has been past the 3 month mark.
