Default What's the smallest batch of beer you've made?

My wife came home with a few brown glass 1 gallon jugs. They remind me of the old moonshine jugs, have the finger hole and everything. Anyways I looked at these and said "I could make beer in those"

Has anyone tried to make small batches of beer? (other than our starters lol)

Currently have two 3/4 gallon going now. Great for "what if" experiments, or "i bet I could ferment that"

Unintentionally, 3 gallons. Turned out great (and it was an IPA)

Just transferred a 1 gallon experimental batch on top of a pound of rhubarb. Got to love those Carlo Rossi wine jugs!

If I ever did a 1 gallon batch, it would have to be an extract brew. no way could I put the time, effort, an money into an all grain batch that would only yield me a gallon.

I am at some point going to try ferment a 5 gallon batch in 5 1gal jugs to experiment. Makes for quicker experimenting with yeasts and temps.
