comment Why is a carboy used for secondary fermentation?
@brewchez Perhaps "extraordinary" is too strong, but plastic buckets let in more oxygen over time than most other vessels. I don't mean to say you can't make great beer with them, but you should be aware. There's a great chart halfway down www2.parc.com/emdl/members/apte/flemishredale.shtml showing different oxygen permeability over time.

@DustinRasener Moving the beer to another container won't clear the beer any better or faster than leaving it alone.

It carbonated just fine, no extra yeast needed.

comment Homebrew sanitisation in a Pinch
@tkone yup, you probably should rinse which is more or less what John Palmer said in that quote. Bleach would be a last resort for me, but it seemed like a perfect solution to the question.

comment How to use Tart Cherries
@dana I would probably treat them the same, yes. BUT, I've never actually done a sour beer, so perhaps you've found yourself another question.
