Moving to a simple one gallon brew setup to experiment with new recipes as the waste or risk is less than with a 5 gallon setup, I'm considering using stainless steel fliptop growlers for carbonating (2 growlers versus 10 bottles).
Glass growlers seem to be an issue for most people because of the pressure and liability of creating a large bottle bomb. Steel should keep that from happening.
Flip top growler to keep the pressure issue at bay as compared to a screw top.
Gonna consider it as one large bottle for carbonating sugar.
Using corn syrup for the carbonation.
Creating 1 gallon batches as opposed to 5 gallon batches.
Kegs I have available are 5 gallon capacity, so kegging the 1 gallon seems a waste of keg and CO2 when I could be kegging a complete 5 gallon batch as opposed to the 1 gallon.
Using the 1 gallon as a small batch for experimentation with recipes to then scale up to the 5 gallon batches.
Any comments or considerations as per using steel growlers for conditioning?
