Oh yes, plenty of room for 2 1/2 gallons.

Ok, so I came up with this. So it may need some tweaking.

1# golden light dme
.50 German wheat
.20# midnight wheat
.5 grams of tetertang hops for 60 mins
Blood orange zest
And some blood orange juice.

Should I add coriander or not. Or is this even a good recipe.

not sure the zest will work with the midnight wheat. And how many IBUs are aiming at getting with half a gram of Tettnang?

That was to be 5 grams. I may just skip the orange this time.

Hey dads

Haven't been posting much either, I always take the Summer off from brewing. Looking to get my first batch done soon.

Glad to see this thread is still going!! Haven't posted in a while, but have been reading and brewing as much as possible! Finally have my technique down and making some solid brews. I'm currently mashing in a 2 gallon jug (moving up to 3 soon for a high-gravity stout), batch sparging, and boiling on a glass electric stove top... which brings me to the question to my fellow one-gallon brewers: are any of you using single burner propane setups for your boil? Are there any disadvantages of using a glasstop electric stove for the ~2.5 gal boil? Thanks as always, and happy brewing.
Josh

Josh, I haven't used propane. I think the only limits of your glasstop are the weight it can hold, and the volume it can boil. We have a new glasstop, and I boil up to four gallons on it with no problem. I like using kitchen equipment, less to buy, less to store.
