Setting up my for my first brew and evaluating what equipment to buy. Is it possible to use the 2.5 gal continuous brew setups to brew in the regular style? All in and all out at the same time. I like the idea of not having to make a little more tea and add it every time I want to take some off, so the traditional brew method would be best for me. But I like the continuous brew systems as they have spigots, are large, and allow for you to leave the scoby in the brewing container between runs (which exposes it to less potential contamination).
So is it ok to use these large continuous brew containers w spigots to do longer traditional style 2-3 week brews?
