Splashing During Secondary Fermentation
« on: November 08, 2007, 08:16:22 PM »
I am new to home brewing.  During the transfer from the primary fermenter, to the secondary, I used a funnel with a strainer.  During the start it was splashing on the bottom of the carboy creating a little foam.  The foam dissapeared, but I am wondering if I ruined my brew.   ???  Any help would be greatly appreciated, or any tips on how to do this in the future.

Hi Bassinkid10,
Welcome to the all consuming hobby that will drive you nuts!

No I don't think it's riuned. It depends upon what kind of beer it is. Is it dark or light ale? It may get a slight cardboard taste from the aeration, but it won't be ruined.  When at the homebrew shop next, look for the Auto-Siphon and get 4 ft of tubing along with it. This will eliminate your transfer and aeration problems.   Let us know how it comes out!  Cheers!
