I have fermented many batches in the brew kettle ranging from 5 to 15 gallons and have never been disappointed.

That would be an issue, but I'm not too bothered by a little haze. I'm trying to get a pipeline going so that I'll be able to bottle condition for at least three weeks. I'm not going to homebrew contests with these beers, I just want to drink fresh tasty beer.

I don't multi-task very well. I find it is a great way to do two things quickly and badly. Come to think of it, I don't always single-task that well either..

I have done this. In my case the rivets on the handle and the rim around the glass lid turned out not to be stainless as evidenced by the rust and corrosion that resulted. Otherwise it worked fine.

See Thunder, I told you that there is rarely if ever an intrinsically small batch brewing questions....the issues and situations are ALWAYS the same regardless of the size of the batch...there's NO need for a separate small batch forum.

Thanks bro, for proving my point.

There's even a book on doing them. So clearly some folks don't happen to share you opinion.



Lots of people on here do 1 gallon batches, INCLUDING ME ON OCCASSION. Funny no one sneers if someone does a 1 gallon batch of wine, or mead, or apfelwein, but if it's beer folks have to have an opinion...which none of us really care about, so why waste your time giving it to us?

The Basic Brewing folks have been advocating doing one gallon batches for years. INCLUDING BARLEYWINES. Why don't you go tell James Sencer you think it's a waste of time?

Just because doing small batches isn't your cup of tea, doesn't mean any of us care about your opinion on the matter....your advice was good.. but noone's asking if you think it's worth doing small batches.

OP, if you really want to tie up your brew kettle doing this, then yeah, go for it...but it seems to me you can make more beer if you just put your small batches in gallon jugs, or frosting buckets, and brew in your kettle.
Hi Revvy:

Ummmm ... where did I share any opinion on whether it's 'worth doing small batches'?

Did you read my post? Or was I that unclear?

My point is exactly yours: if the OP's happy tying up his brew kettle for the time it takes to ferment, then by all means, try it for us and report back! And to be scientific, he might try identical batches except:

- a batch fermented in the kettle
- a batch fermented single stage
- a batch fermented dual stage

Then have a party, give them out to friends for tasting and analysis.

I guess I didn't state right out that I brew small myself ... I'm racking a 2 gallon ordinary this evening to 2 x 1 gallon secondaries, one with dry hops and one without.

Anything "small" right now piques my interest, hence my joining the discussion.

Down boy.

Maybe I miss interpreted, but this kinda sounded like the typical slams that folks make about small batch brewing. There was a big discussion about comments like that in the New forum request thread....

"Most importantly, 1 gallon makes a minimal quantity of beer. If you're happy with ~10 beers every 10 days minimum, give it a go and report back!"

In light of that discussion, the above could be taken as a being a bit derogatory.....

Sorry.

No worries, and I'm going to try this myself, at least for primary. Why not? I'll report back.

I think you might have too much trub if it is an all gain batch
