My son and I brewed up a scotch ale 4 day ago. Put it in a 6.5 gal ale pale with a starter and it took off
Anyway, the Ale Pale is a POS and the lid doesn't seal. So I just been running open primary for a week and racking to a keg after a week on smaller beers,
This is my first big beer, so I want to leave in the cake longer.
Now that the majore explosive period is over. I want to get it under an airlock.
Long story short, here's my question:
Should I transfer it cake and all to the 5 gal air lock bucket?
Or Should I just rack it over like a secondary? And leave the cake behind.
I've got CO2 for the transfer.
