Musical Carboys


OK, yeah.  *That* needed to get transferred.  I am not impressed with these big-mouthed carboys.  The airlock dried out and in about 4 days, I had a nice thick film on the beer, once air had gotten in.  We'll see how fermentation picks up in secondary, but I think it will recover just fine.


In order to make that semi-emergency transfer, I needed an empty 6-gallon carboy, so I ended up transferring it into a carboy which previously contained:
a Pinot Noir, transferred into a carboy which previously contained:
a Cabernet Sauvignon, transferred into a carboy which previously contained:
a cider, which I bottled.

...whew.
