OK, I have been seaching, but I couldnt really find an answer.
Is it possible to make a double IPA by, just getting a regular IPA kit say from AHS and make it a 2.5 gal?
From what I gather by reading other recipies, a double IPA simple has more fermentables to get a higher ABV, and more hops.
Has anyone every tired this?
And what about like an Imperial stout? If I took a regular dry stout kit from AHS, and just made a 2.5 gal batch, would that be an Imperial stout?
ok, one last question; when I am looking through the AHS website at all the tasty kits, they say they recommend double pitching for high ABV. Now if I am using a single kit but only making a 2.5 gal, and I pitch the single tube of yeast...is that double pitching?
I got a 3 gal carboy just sitting around, so I thought I could put it to some good use.
