Well i've just transfered my first batch to a secondary 5 gallon BB and its nice to see the color and peak in on it every day or so. However I feel I missed the action of the fermenting using the ale pale. So of course if it ain't broke don't fix it but just wondering if a 6 gallon BB would have enough head space for a primary. My LHBS doesn't sell BB larger than 6 gallons.
Another 2 week wait then onto bottle, the wait is just painful. At least I know it'll be worth it, smelled delicious during the transfer.
