hi gang i making a raspberry wheat and have a question about the secondary. I plan on adding about 3-5 lbs of raspberries to the secondary on an upcoming brew. My primary will be a bucket, and i can do one of two things for secondary,. Try to squeeze it all in one 5 gal. carboy, split between 2 5 gal carboys, or transfer to another bucket. I'm leaning towards the bucket due to the ease of getting the berries in and out and the room factor. i'm thinking the 2 carboys might have to much headspace. Opinions?

Bucket FTW. It won't be in there aging forever and it's easier to clean the berries out of.

Bucket. Cleaning fruit out of carboys is murder.
