let me first say that i'm aware that this isn't the smartest way to do make a 10 gallon batch, but i'd still like to throw the question out there and see what you guys think ...
i'm brewing the same IPA recipe with 2 different people on 2 consecutive days, but i'd like to use my blichmann fermenator for both batches and just ferment it all together.
if i was to brew a 5 gallon batch and dump it into my fermentor with the yeast, can i brew a 5 gallon batch of the same beer the next day and add it to the same fermentor (with new yeast)? assuming i'm really careful with sanitation, are there any negative effects of doing this (besides the additional labor)? are there any steps i should adjust to make sure the final product hasn't been altered?
thanks ... appreciate your input!
