Alright, so im currently fermenting my cerveza lager right now in the primary. Recipe is written to make me believe they want me to secondary in my keg. Though i guess i see no reason not to, i just wanted to see what y'all thought. Every lager ive done has been lagered in a carboy. Id rather just rack it once rather than twice.
Ok so now I'm ready to do another batch while my first batch sits. I purchased the Bavarian Weissbeir and I'm going to start working on it later this week. Now I've read on this forum that some people are useing an airlock on there LBK by installing a bubble airlock and putting a rubber gasket around the lid to make it air tight. After reading about the LBK being air tight, it sounds like it's a good way to prevent outside contaminates to enter and helps the fermentation process. My question is, can I do something like this with the Mr. Beer refill kits or is this only for specific blends? What are some disadvantages? There seems to be advantage to having the LBK airtight with a bubble airlock installed on the lid that will allow the Co2 to escaped and not bring in any contaminates. I saw the original LBK had airtight lids. Comments?
