Will definitely be trying this for my next brew. The squeezing...not the wine press.

Anyone have any thoughts on creating multiple 1-gallon batches from the same wort?

I've tried this so that 2 gallons of wort become 1 single gallon batch of plain porter, and 1 single gallon batch of chocolate chili pepper porter. It's the volume efficiency of 5-gallon beer brewing with the experimental maneuverability of a one-gallon batch!

If anyone has ideas for more recipes to use as a base, and then some variations on those recipes, I'd love to try them out! I've got 4 fermenters sitting empty, here!

Different dry hops in a pale ale or ipa, different fruits in a blonde or wheat, different spices in a stout, different yeasts in the same beer.

Default Transfered from Primary to Secondary

I wanted to free up my 3-gallon carboy so I decided to transfer my Holiday Beer after 10 days. Haven't done a secondary in a long time. I need to get some smaller Racking Canes because I had a hard keeping the siphon going between bottles. Huge PITA but I got it done. I guess we'll see how it turns out.

so who sells the best 1 gallon starter kit. I do large atches and i am looking to shrink down to 2.5 gallon batches but for now 1 gallon batches seems to be a good starting point since both my 3 gallon fementers will be held up for a long while with a sour i brewed.

so who sells the best equipment kit and who has the best recipe kits. I normally make my own recipes but i want to just brew others recipes for now.

Haven't done a kit in over a year since I left Coopers behind and started my AG small batch BIAB. I just pick a style, do some research and punch the numbers into BeerSmith. No need kits. :-)

I have beer smith and that's what i have been doing for larger batches. I just want to be lazy and just brew beer with no work to make the recipe

Well i looked over al the kits i have pretty much everything but a small fermenter and a small racking cane. So i placed a order with northern brewer for 2 fermenters a mini auto siphon and a black ipa kit. I am in the process of converting my recipes in beer smith and setting up m equipment. i need to go buy a smaller stock pot everything i have is to0 small or too big.

Brooklyn Brew Shop was how I started two years ago. I haven't used them in ages but a few people on here use them for 1 gallon with nice results. Check them out as well. Their kit used to come with a 1 gallon carboy along with just about everything else besides a siphon. Good luck
