So it's not the best for beers that are dependent on yeast for the flavor like Belgians, hefeweizens, etc... But would be good for beers with "clean" yeast flavors like almost any American style.
The cake also takes up some space in the fermenter. So If your fermenter was kinda small to begin with you will probably loose some beer to blow off. I use the 6 gallon better bottles and some times I loose about a half gallon of beer during the ferment.
