I'm interested in fermenting some of my cubes with different yeasts.
Are there any problems involved with splitting my no chill cubes into 2 x 20 litre cubes are fermenting with 2 different yeasts?

Is 10 litres of wort and 10 litres headspace ok?
Should i purge headspace with co2 after oxygenating the wort?

I have plenty of 20lt cubes on hand and don't want to have to buy 10 litre ones as well.

Any thoughts or comments apprieciated.

Cheers, Mark
