i usually go a month, i usually bottle one in a plastic used pepsi bottle.  this way i can feel the firmness of the bottle and i can easily see the yeast formation.

when i started going small, i was able to put my 4 gallon kettle right in the refrigerator overnight, then the next day i pour it through a strainer into the ferment bucket. i quit worrying about a chiller.

i use buckets. various sizes. some spigots some not. i have added spigots because i am not scared of my sanitation process. as mentioned, check delis. we have an olive oil/basalmic vinegar store that gets products in 3 gallon buckets that he ends up throwing. i have a half dozen of them.

i use a thermometer that i use to cook roast.  it is on a long cord so that it comes out of the oven to the instrument.  just put it in and clip the cord to the top of the pot at the level you want. 

FWIW i brew about 1.5 gallon batches and use a 4g electric kettle

i brew 1-2 gallon batches but it is hard to do those with liquid extract just because of cost. was easier to go all grain at that level

I wouldn't mind having some of those if you could naturally carb in them.  I think a 5l would be fun to have at get togethers.

It made me want to experiment... Next time I have left over cake I know what I'm going to make a 1 gallon batch of!

what the hell is left over cake? 8)
