2 Super noob question here.

1) Ed calls for a 5 gallon carboy to ferment in. I shouldn't have any problem in a 6 gallon....right?

2) Should/Can I ferment longer than 6 weeks? Benefits/Disadvantage?

Yes, a 6 gallon is fine.

Ferment as long as it takes. Sometimes, due to temperature and older yeast, things don't progress on the same timeline. That's fine- it'll be done when it's done, but like with beer!

That should sum it up.
