Not that I agree, I'm just saying.

I have noticed most of the posts these days have to do with scaling recipes. We have posted our brewing software, we have posted different 1 gallon recipes, I think the time has finally come to write up a comprehensive article on how to properly scale a recipe and give it a sticky on the beginner brewing section.
Also, we have been told by the mods to report any and all posts that simply advocate for brewing larger batches, and they will delete them. I personally get really annoyed with those, and I know that some of us get especially upset *Cough* Revvy *Cough* (lol). This is a reason why I believe that 1 galloners (or at least small batch brewing) really should get their own section.

Posts similar to "Why not just brew bigger batches?", or "1 Gallon brewing is a waste of time," are not problems that bigger batch brewers have to deal with.

But I do like the amount of traffic the thread is getting. Its good to know that there are other small batch brewers to converse with.

Luckily with the work schedule I'm on I get to brew every wed morning so I love it. Just doing a mead and a cider this week so not everything will be used. Before this I hadn't brewed in about 4 months and I was twitching looking for my fix, haha.

I'm normally hanging out in what used to be the hbt chatroom. And then we do a Google+ hangout and talk and show off my brewing.


The good old days of hbt.

Bought a wine thief today. Going to sample my IPA (first brew I ever made).
Can't wait to see how it's turned out.

Any of y'all sample your beers during the different stages?

Not when I'm doing one gallon batches, no. I need every drop if I'm only gonna get 8 full bottles.

I will drink the dregs of my bottling bucket though!
