Easy enough with what you might already have in your kitchen. I have a 12qt stockpot, add 1.5-2 gallons of water, add all fermentables and bring to a boil. Add hops for desired time, cool, transfer to fermenter and top off to 5 gallons and pitch yeast. Simple as that.

Decant into a clean 5 gallon bucket for bottling? Leave the trub behind.

My bottling bucket is a 5 gallon from lowes. I put in a plastic spigot and attach my bottling wand with a legnth of tygon tube. Just disolve your priming sugar in some water, dump it into your bottling bucket, and transfer your beer into it with a racking cane or auto siphon. Simple and easy.

i understand what you guys are saying, i think i'm just doing a horrible job of explaining what i did. i'm fermenting in this

so i'm thinking of the max relax (although far less precise) approach of bottling straight from here by bottle priming individually. weather i do that or as you guys suggest, my question is still the same, how do i decide how many volumes co2 i want?

Did gram-pa have something like this laying around with his system? It might have had nails in place of screws and a black rubber hose instead of clear vinyl.





...how are you going to get the beer out of the crock? I have used one of these with great sucess, but I decant and place the priming sugar in the bottling bucket.
