normally i brew small batches with all grain. despite having made a heat exchanger from an immersion coil, i can generally just throw my kettle (4g) into the refrigerator. then the next day dump in to my 2g fermentation bucket add yeast and go. usually pour through a strainer that collects hops, hot break, cold break.
however, my brother gave me an extract kit for 5g batch which i brewed yesterday. i did the boil and added to my larger fermentation bucket with previously boiled and cooled water. thus i now have a bucket of wort with a nice layer of cold break. i will be transferring this later today and adding yeast. just found it impressive.
