I'm just getting involved in brewing and have a question concerning the size of carboys.
In my reading, I assume as a primary I'd not want a 5gallon carboy if I'm looking to brew 5gallon beer batches.
My thinking would be to get 6-6.5gal for primary and then use the 5gal for secondary.
Am I on the right track with those thoughts?
Right now I've only one 5gallon that I'm using for my first attempt of brewing (Eds apfelwein).
I've one 5gallon better bottle on the way (I wanted to see what these were like) from AHS when I ordered a Wheat kit the other day.
I just ran into an offer today where I can get two 5 gal gently used glass carboys for $25 with an option for 2 more at the same price.
I don't think I'd need that many at that size...but then again....
Thanks for your input!
