General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Small batches.....
« on: November 23, 2010, 11:43:16 AM »
I do test batches of 1gal sometimes when I wanna try something and don't think I want 5+gals of it. ( Idid a series of test batches using kaffir lime leaves and am glad I didn't brew 5gal at a time of some of them) I use a 2gal cooler with a screen at the bottom, 1 gal jugs to ferment in. So far I've pitched the entire packet or vile of yeast in with no noticable ill effects... I'll also do 2.5-3gal batches of something thats usually 7% or higher, usually anything thats going to be bottled and aged for a while... Even though its almost the same amount of time to do a smaller batch than 5+gal, I like being able to try something and tweak it til I like it w/o having to go thru 5gals of it... only so much room/time to drink...

Its recommended to ferment at mid 60s, once completed then you can 'lager' it, this will give you the clean lager like profile you're after with an ale strain.

How bout Pecan? If you've ever smoked with it, it leaves a nice sweet flavor in meat.

When I did one of these a couple years ago, I used Amarillo, Cascade and Simcoe. OG was about 1.081 and IBUs 52. When I do it again in the next couple months, I'm going to up the IBUs to around 75 this time...

If you change it to 'Mr. Beer'... I'm gonna suggest you change from 2000 posts and up to 'Where did my life go?!'

something to think about if you brew this again, use some Pacific Gem (NZ) hops... they really have a good blackberry flavor/aroma to them, could make a nice addition to this brew.

get the 10gal pot... and don't spend the extra cash on welded... weldless is just as good and if you ever have to, you can break it down if needed.... doubt that will ever happen though....
