Sure - you can make 80L...... just brew twice. :)Adding water to an AG batch post boil is just
not a very good idea most of the time. eg if you want even a normal-ish 1.050 SG, you need to
brew a 1.10...

Thanks! Can the haze cause any off flavors?It's flavorless. It does tend to shorten the shelf

Anybody remember PV=nrt? Fropping the temp from 65 to 32 (291 to 273 in kelvin) means you drop
