I used 2 skinny beans in 2.5 gallons and it was plenty. Depends on the bean size.

Thanks for the awesome thread. Bad shoulder injury this past year and it'll be awhile before being able to lug carboys around. The 1 gallon sounds great, and I get to keep quite a variety of beers on hand. All grain to boot. 2 gallon cooler should be the right size? Really pumped to get back brewing again. Right now enjoying a 2 year old Blond Doppelbock.

The steam from that cant be good for the books. I wish my local library did such fun things though. I would spend more time there and less time drinking beer. Or not.

Here is my first try. Was the Everyday IPA from Brookly Brew Shop. It looks great, was perfectly carbonated, just wasn't super tasty. Was missing some of the hoppiness and citrus flavor I like in an IPA. It's definitely serviceable though so I'll take that as a success my first time around.

Yep... That's a winner.

Now you can do it again with a different hop treatment and go for the flavor you want

Throw some hops in the boil at the very end for more flavor, and, drop some in the fermentor about a week before bottling. I love Cascade or Citra for this.

My last IPA involved alternating Simcoe with Cascade using Cascade in the fermentor. L'm thinking Simcoe might be too "Catty" for a 1 gallon batch. It's a potent hop.
