I've been brewing 5 gallon batches at a time and really would like to try something else. I'm curious at nature and was thinking about buying 3 of the Mr. Beer 2 gallon fermenters and experimenting with different yeast strains.
I'll have more to come in my next few posts but I'm thinking about taking a base recipe for 5 gallons, scaling it down to 2 gallons and fermenting with one strain of yeast, changing the recipe slightly and then brewing with a different type of yeast, etc.
Take base recipe and scale down to 2 gallons. Place in fermenter 1 with yeast A. Take base recipe and add like malto dextrin/lactose and place in fermenter 2 with yeast A. Take base recipe and add slightly different grains and place in fermenter 3 with yeast A.
I'm really trying to formulate my own recipe so I can get a great tasting brew. Has anyone tried this? What were their results? Any suggestions for me?
