    I will make an extract Zombie Dust (kinda) clone tomorrow. I've never actually had ZD so I
    won't know how close I come to it, but I will do lots of late Citra additions and aim for an OG
    of 1.065.

    I'm planning to do 4 x 1 gallon SMASH brews from the same starting wort. I will mash some
    Marris Otter and hop a gallon each with Citra, Amarillo, Centennial and Columbus. Everything
    identical except ...

    Leaving on vacation, and all my fermenters are empty, so needed to get something going...Threw

    I would be worried about getting a "yeasty" taste if I pitched a whole 11g packet into one
    gallon. Is that a valid concern?From what I've read, it is harder to overpitch than underpitch.
    The beer that...

    I made a 1-gallon batch of IPA and used a whole packet of US-05. Fermented really clean and it
    is the best beer I have ever made. Just wondering - for those who use less than a full pack of
    yeast, do ...

    Haven't had enough time to do a proper brew for some time, so I am doing a 1-gallon steeped
    grain and extract IPA with Centennial, Amarillo and Citra. If it turns out good, I will try an
    all-grain ful...

    Check out some of the posts on the brew in a bag (BIAB) method. It is a cheap way to get
    yourself into all-grain brewing, and that will save you money. If you brew smaller batches -
    try 2.5 gallons fo...
