don't think you want beer yeast,
you want one that can take higher alcohol concentrations

the guy at the brew store said it would make up to a 14% alcohol concentration....but most likely around 10-12%

there's a brew store local. I'm going to pick up an airlock tomorrow...$1.50...that's worth not having to bend this glass. As far as primary and secondary fermentation buckets. I called the store and they have a 6.5gallon primary for $15 and a secondary glass for $22.

First. Why do you need 2 vessels to ferment?
Second. Why is the second one glass?


answered both my own questions today.

second vessel is glass because higher alcohol concentrations can eat through plastic.
