Another thought is every;time you open the fridge you are letting all the cold air come rolling out the bottom. Yea I know that happens when you get a soda, or any other food.
2 tablespoons of sugar don't leave a whole lot of trub. TAD bottles have little "feet" molded in that keep them from rolling.

As far as letting cold air out of fridge every time you pour a beer? Just get a really large mug! (duh)

please click and show support Id like to see it get off the ground so we dont have to hunt for hours, buy expensive software or sit doing calculus to put a recipie togather. Maybe if we make enough noise we will get our own little section
Beersmith is only $20 and there are some free ones as well. That opens the world for you in proven recipes.

My order from northern brewer showed up today. Yay for my mini auto siphon and 2 more fermenters. Also ordered the black ipa kit. I'm excited to brew it.

I found Brewsmith confusing, a few too many details where I didn't quite fit in (the equipment seemed to change the calculation and I couldn't guess what the equivalent to 1 or 3 gallon stovetop all-grain) plus I already made a spreadsheet for scaling that I did a good job.

As for my Brewing Classic Styles question, I guess I was getting at should I just treat the recipes' grain bills as if they're for five gallons and ignore the mention of 7 gallons?

I brewed a one gallon batch with rosemary (Rosemary's Baby). I have no idea how the spice with come across, so one gallon to the rescue. I'll post the recipe if it turns out.

I really had a tough time with beersmith when I first got it too. I found it overwhelming and the equipment part confusing. Now, I can't even dream of NOT using it. It makes my batches so easy and really helped me understand beer so much more.

I love the way it scales and I also print 2 copies for my scaled down recipes, one in imperial and one in metric. I find grams WAY easier to deal with on a small batch!!
