Yum, I need some "craft beer"

One note though, you say the store rep said once it reaches projected FG it's done. That may not be true, under the right circumstances, it could go lower and thus cause problems after time in bottle if you are bottling. The target FG is just that, a target. You won't know it's done until you get consistent matching gravities a couple days apart or it hits the same as your FFT. This last of what I said has already been stated above, I just wanted to clarify the part about the "target" to avoid potential bottle bombs if you bottle

I would stop and sample their fare at any event I saw them at, at least once

Yes, spur of the moment bottling would be a sticking point for me and 5-6 gallon batches, I know you are doing significantly less, so no problem

Nice, glad its working out. Did you have to bottle at some crazy hour to hit the brix correctly?

All Grain Brewing / Re: BIAB and sparging

Nice to see you on here again. You can but do not need to sparge. Sparging should get more sugars out of your grain bed, but dilutes your OG. You just need to plan out the recipe for one way or the other to be close to you target. I have not done BIAB, but his is what I understand about the process

Sounds about like my experience, although mine is on a much shorter timeline. Started with fermenting in a bucket with ice bottles, found a deal on a smallish chest freezer and a controller for fermentation, bought an abandoned side by side from one of our storage facilities, and finally got most of my hops out of the upright freezer in the garage. We have a small beverage fridge upstairs for beer, soda, and occasionally wine. The side by side is in basement with fridge side full of home brew while the freezer side is packed with hops. There are still a couple pounds of hops in the garage freezer. If any of these crap out on me, it will be a priority to replace, as i have become too accustomed to having this much space. Having a DBF is great, even though there is usually some soda in there. Cheers to having yours back MDixon.

Nope, for all the same reasons as you already stated

I think that the Love 2 brew kit you linked looks like a great starting place for that size of batch. Add a kettle and you're ready to rock

Yes and a lot of yeast. There will normally be enough left to bottle condition, but after conditioning, you will wind up with less yeast in your bottles

Sounds great to me; the wife's been wanting to check out the west coast and we should be able to work this into those plans!
