Transferred to secondary last week. When I opened the bucket I realized that my friend who had topped it off had put way too much water in it. It was sitting at about the 6.5 gallon mark. This was concerning because I was worried it would taste watered down. This was not the case. It was completely drinkable, outside of not being carbonated and warm, smelled terrific and was gorgeous in color. I was impressed at how well the Irish moss worked (it was my first time).
After the 5 gallons were racked, I decided to throw half a gallon into a growler that I had laying around with a tablespoon or so of table sugar, just to see how things would go. I mean, it would have been wasted anyways. I'll probably crack that open in a few days and drink it while I bottle the rest of the batch.
