As for 3 gallon batches, I would say the big pro of that is 1) as you said, space 2) more variety 3) an untested recipe or 4) something you don't want a lot of. For awhile, I did 3 gallon batches of untested recipes so that if they were bad, I wouldn't have 2 cases of crap! I got away from doing that, though, when my daughter was born. Now, brew days are precious, and you can make 5 gallons in the time it takes you to make 3! I will still do a 3 batch if it's something I just don't want 2+ cases of.
For Mac I use Beer Alchemy. Has a nice iPod companion program that wirelessly syncs with your main database.
And then, once one has their expanded brewery, where does one brew? You'll be exiled out of the SWMBO's kitchen...
Sorry about the late post. I will add my $0.10
Aluminum is just fine. About a third of the cost of Stainless. However, if one can afford it go with Stainless. One already equipped with ball valve, thermometer, sight-glass etc would be optimal for sure. ...
Common wisdom I've always heard is to add it after the vigorous part of fermentation is complete. Idea being that the crazy part of fermentation will blow off a lot of your honey character. That said, someone on here, I forget who, says they have good luck adding just after flameout.
Sorry if I put you on the spot Denny, I'm just curious what they actually do ...
I hope to do the Rye IPA that I couldn't get to last weekend.
That must be because I stole your mojo. I brewed the Rye IPA last weekend.
I wish that was the reason....I was caring for a dying dog....
i use beersmith on the pc and my favorite for my iphone is brew pal
At one point the author of BrewPal told me it was going to support BeerXML in a future version. That would allow you to transfer recipes between BeerSmith and BrewPal. That was a while ago though, so not sure what happened with that.
