Thanks Aunty - I have heard from others in the group that I have been
wasting my time transferring it to a secondary fermentator. In my reply to
one of the group, in my own inimitable way - I described how my wash in the
secondary "erupted" when I stirred it this morning. I will check with my
supplier re turbo clear - the Sparkelloid use seems to work ok.
