General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Top Off Water Extract Kits
« on: October 06, 2017, 11:04:48 PM »
Just finished a Northern Brewer Nut Brown Ale Extract kit and finished the boil with right at 5 gallons in the kettle!

I started this batch with 5.75 gallons, so hopefully I have figured out my system.

My intention was never to add top off water, that’s why I purchased a 10 gallon pot but I was getting a bit frustrated with my inconsistencies....

This nut ale should be very nice, looking forward to the finished product.

Thanks for the replies and encouragement to stay the course with full boils.

I keep reading to add top off water to the fermenter.

Is there any issue with adding the top off water to the boil kettle at the end of the boil (before adding my chiller to cool)? My kettle has gallon markers stamped on the inside.

It’s a 10 gallon pot doing 5 gallon extract brews, still trying to learn my equipment and have come up a little short on volume - hoping I can nail down the evaporation rates and just do full boils...
