It would be fine if you were bottling immediately after primary but if you have any plans of aging it then you run a high risk of oxidation/infection. I suggest either buying a smaller fermenter OR adding yeast directly to the jug/bottle. I do that and leave the cap slightly loose to allow CO2 to be removed and it turns out fine. It is only in there for a week or so then to the fridge to crash!
Primary: Cherry Melomel
