First of all, 9.6 lbs of extract will put you in the IPA range for gravity. You might want to cut down the amount of extract a pound or two. Second, you can use 1 gallon up to a full 6.5 gallons to boil with. Keep in mind that the higher the boil amount the longer it will take to cool down to pitching temps. So, you could boil around 3 gallons and top off at the end to reach your 5 gallons.

Jon, last year that Weihenstephaner Tradition was sublime. It was near to perfect as a beer can be and the first time it was available in the States.

Thanks blatz! I haven't tried the Hofbrau yet, so I try that one. It's the first year they've had it. I've tried the others and I really don't go for the Dopplebocks anymore so I can try more variety. It's a festival that I look forward to every year-not only great beer, but great German food, music, and dancing. My friend competes in the rock throw every year.

that's quite a list.  is it a one day event?  too many good ones to try.
No, it's Friday through Sunday. I'm going on Saturday and there is no possible way to try them all. Just wondering if any stand out to anyone that I must try.

I was happy with the Festbier that I made last year. 45% Pils 35% Munich I 20% Vienna and 1-2 oz Carafa. Last year, I made it with Wyeast 2124. This beer is my next brew, but I'm going to make it with Wyeast 2206 this time.

Belgian Blue - Blueberry wheat with Star Anise.  Blueberries from my farm in SW Michigan.  Should be interesting.
Nice. I just came back from our place in the UP with 15 lbs of wild blueberries.

Brewed an old school IPA with the 4 "C's".

Old school is still good. Sounds great.
First brew since my last eight over 1.060. I only have a few ounces of American hops left over from 2016, so I think I finally ordered the correct amount for a year.

I always use some sugar in my IIPA to help dry it out. For 3 gallons, half a pound should be fine.

It's been a month since I've been back. The family and I had a great time. I got to go to Breakside, The Commons, Full Sail, and Fort George. Pfriem was the best surprise and every beer that I tasted there was spot on from the Helles to the IPA. I've never seen so many IPAs in cans at the stores. The food highlight was eating fresh Dungeness Crab on the beach in WA.

I just got a six of this brewed with Brauhaus Miltenberger packaged on 7/5. Great Malt complexity and the right amount of hops for a wonderful drinking experience. The crisp finish leaves you wanting more. I'm really digging these unique compilations every year.

For that time frame, I would force carb and use the beer gun. That way you will know the carbonation level going in. Although, if it's too much of a pain in the ass go ahead and bottle condition because I've had beers that were not dinged very much for low carbonation.
