Not really. It will be fine. I used a pack of yeast for a gallon and it behaved perfectly normally. Not even one flame.
That literally made my whole night I laughed.

So joam has been bubbling away in my ale pail for about a week when should I rack to my 3 gallon carboy. (Just purchased otherwise would have used that as primary)
Also is it cool to take a gravity reading or should I wait till it pretty much stops bubbling?

Thanks

JAOM doesn't require racking until the fruit drops out which will take two months or so. Throw it in the closet and let it ferment away. I racked my first batch at two months and will probably bottle it at 3. Gravity is not necessary unless you are really curious. Mine was 1.030 at two months.

The reason I wondered is because the guys at my lhbs said that after ferments done air will slip in the plastic. But your saying it's cool in the pail the full two months?

It's probably ok for two years. The whole oxygen getting in the pail thing it not really totally accurate. Two months for absolute sure. A good year easily if you don't open the pail to get a taste every other day.

Got a 6.5g batch of joam going. Well it was started when I had enjoyed some homebrew already that evening ... and for whatever reason I didn't feel like slicing up the eight oranges ... so I ran them through the blender and poured the slurry into the fermenter. It seems to bubbling away pretty good, but there is some stratification in the carboy that comes back even after stirring. Like the bottom looks thick, then about halfway up there is a layer of orange material floating, then at the top there a few inches of ground orange.
