I plan on using a slurry from a porter. Aside from that, is there anything else I should be aware of?

Also, I'm paranoid about losing too much to blow-off. Should I split it up into 2 carboys? I guess I would have to divide the slurry equally between the two carboys too, then.

RIS with lots o yeast will produce lots o heat. Try to monitor the temp and keep it under control as best you can. It will need lots o oxygen too. Aerate for several hours or oxygenate twice if you have it. Then do your best to hide it from yourself for at least a year. Want me to hide it for you? Brew on, Tom

Using a 6.5 gallon should be fine. Blow off is a good idea. If you happen to have another yeast cake sitting about, it works to rack onto this after a couple days.

Buy some foam control.
