When doing a 1 gallon batch in a glass jug do you add the 3lbs honey to exactly 1 gallon of water? that would essentially be more than would fit in the gallon jug correct? Or would I be better off mixing like 3lbs of honey with .75 gallons of water to get the batch right at 1 gallon?
If done the first way would the extra must be saved to use to top off secondary or tertiary(sp)if I decide to add some sort of flavoring when I rack to secondary?
I am thinking of doing 3lbs to 3.5 lbs of honey, water, nutrients, in a one gallon batches and add different flavorings when I rack to secondary.
Thanks for guiding this new bee!
