Subject: Is a secondary fermentor needed?
Date: 1989-05-30 04:29:25 GMT

I'm working on a batch of Homebrew--it's the first I've done for several
years. I used to transfer the wort to a secondary fermentor after a few days.
Based on articles I've seen here, I'm wondering if this is still a necessary
step. I've got the wort in a 6 gallon canning container (I boiled all 5
gallons). I have a thick sheet of plastic tied over the top of the container.

Which would introduce more contamination: leaving it where it is for the
whole fermentation process, or transferring it to a glass carboy with a vapor
lock?
