hmm.....shoulda crushed them. didn't think about that. thanks.
since they are on top and the trub is on the bottom, i'll just have to rack the best i can with a bag over the cane. my only other carboy is tied up right now with german apple wine.
i guess i could rack to bottling bucket, clean out my secondary and then transfer back to the carboy. or just leave it in the bottling bucket.
