No, North Peak. RBB did move. They are still in town, but in a MUCH bigger place. more of a nightclub when I went in just before they reopened. Russ had a great story about how the state worked with him to get him licensed all over again...

Russ said they planned on having a quieter area in there too, for the people who enjoyed the old atmosphere, but I don't know if that is still the plan or if it's been put in place yet.

They don't use open fermenters at RBB.

I know Anchor Steam is made with open fermenters too. So is Jolly Pumpkin and although they have issues with wild yeast (meaning that is how they brew), I'm not sure they have an issue with oxidation.

Real answer to OP - nope, you don't have to transfer.

Smart a$$ answer to everyone else:

Got it. I stand corrected. No lid required. No airlock required. Keep it in the primary fermentation vessel as long as you want. No problem.

Thanks for all the replies! It's not airtight because it is a 20gallon liquid sugar bucket with an improper lid resting on the top. Fly proof but I'm sure it's not airtight. Still good to go?
