That's the beauty of small batches. It won't really take up much room. When it's bottled ...is the bottle conditioning temp the same as others? I could easily put it in a 65 degree area I have for a year. I'm going to have to look at some recipes and start trying to figure out what I might like.

Also, I now have a pick of 2 stouts, 3 pales and a Belgian. I really need to make another Amber and Porter. I also have an oatmeal ill be doing tomorrow. Love to brew!

Mr beer fermenters would be great for 2 gallons batches.

And I need more fermenters, but 16 is just ridiculous. I want to brew so much and have to limit myself right now, especially since I still need to buy christmas gifts.

I'm realizing the bad thing about that barleywine finishing so low is that now I am curious as to how far I can take it. Just wrote a recipe for a 30 plato (~1.130) Russian Imperial, just to see if I could go that high.

The only problem with those really high abv brews is that I can't drink more of them...

Yeah, you do have to be careful. I've got a batch of blueberry wine that finished at 18.7%. Unless I want to get totally wasted I don't dare drink more then 1 bottle... and I'm 305lb.

Hmm, that reminds me, I'm down to 3 bottles of it. I think I'll put together some more this weekend.
