I haven't opened it at all yet. I wouldn't think that it's done fermenting, though. It's only been 27 hours since I put it in there. I would assume it has a few weeks to go.

You only say that because you didn't see me with my arm up to my elbow in my bucket fishing out the o-ring I dropped while inserting my fermentation lock. :)

I have a spring loaded bottling tube. I guess it goes on the siphon. I could always go buy a bucket and spigot. It seems a shame to have a glass carboy and not use it for something.

Thanks! I'm not getting those temps. I have a bucket band I could put on, but it says to only put it on for 8 days max. I'll have to buy a portable heater for one room or something.

Ahhh. Her reasoning was that it would be clearer. Do you think it would be better to wait until half gravity, like the book says, then transfer to the carboy?

How do you check the temperature during fermentation? Do you leave the thermometer in the bucket/carboy?
