    New PET 6 gallon carboy

    Need some answers from the pros: I'm a newbie and only on my 2nd batch. I bought a 6 gallon PET carboy to use as my primary fermentation container instead of the pail that came with my kit because I wanted to be able to see the brew during fermentation. So I brewed the White House Honey Ale last...
