2.5 Gallons = 9.4 liters. You are going to be boiling your wort for an hour, thus you will need
to start out with more than 2.5 gallons (probably more like 3.5), since some water will boil
off. And yo...

Have you brewed anything before? I would recommend at the very least starting with a known
solid recipe. Just like you wouldn't start your baking career by inventing your own chocolate

This is a cream stout using the same harvested WLP005. Taken 10 minutes ago in the fermenter:

With my ESB, the OG was 1.060 and the FG was 1.013 at bottling on October 5. I just did a

I've done an "accidental" BIAB partigyle. I was using some new brewing software and overshot my
OG for a Best Bitter, and it was trending toward IPA or Barleywine. So I did a partigyle - 5

I think the OP mentioned a strike temp of +12 degrees. That sounds high for a one gallon batch.
