My normal brewing session is 5-gallon all-grain batches. In the past I have been given extract kits as gifts, which I am always happy to receive and use. This Christmas I was gifted a Mr Beer Kit. It was mailed to me from afar, so it isn't something I can easily return or take back to a store. I could always regift it to someone, but I don't have anyone in mind who might be interested in it. It comes with a 2-gallon PET fermentor, ten PET beer bottles, two 850 gram cans of Coopers hopped LME (the Aztec Mexican Cerveza and the Bohemian Czech Pilsner), two 5g sachets of "ale yeast" and some other misc stuff.
Anyone have any suggestions? I might go ahead and make the two 2-gallon batches, probably with some tweaking of ingredients and yeast (850 grams into 2 gallons only comes to something like 1.035), but after that, I don't know. I might use the fermentor for small batch brewing, mead making, cider making, etc. Maybe it could be my dedicated souring vessel.
