I Brewed my first beer this weekend, everything went great until the end. I was putting the fermenter into a low cabinet to sit undisturbed and hit the spigot spilling about a gallon and a half. What should i do? Its fermenting fine the airlock is bubbling away. Should i just leave it in the primary till its time to bottle instead of putting it into a 5 gallon carboy? Im worried that the extra air will destroy the beer. HELP

the only bad thing that's going to happen to this batch is that it's going to be about a gallon and a half short:D

Don't worry, it'll be fine. You can transfer to a secondary when fermentation is complete or you can just leave it in the primary for a couple weeks, either way and your beer will be fine.

I had a similiar incident with mine. I didnt have my spigot screwed tight enough and lost about a half gallon.
