    Sounds like you need a Brewpi. Controlling the overshoot Is what it was built for. Because it
    is PID driven, it learns your system and turns the fridge (or heater) off prior to reaching
    your set point...

    I tried to get into building water profiles, then realized how much actual science is involved.
    :confused:I recommend starting here: Brewing Water Primer and consider how involved you want to
    get. It ...

    Ok, dry yeast t58 rehydrated plenty of yeast, sg 1.064, fermented in the 70's, 1week
    fermentation - pretty standard stuff and process I use for 5-10 gallon batches which always
    attenuate. That's why i...

    It's doubtful that the shape of the fermenter is causing it not to attenuate. You don't mention
    the temperature you fermented at, the o.g. of the beer, starter or not, or length of
    fermentation. My be...

    Using the temperature of the beer to adjust the amount of priming sugar takes into account the
    CO2 that is already dissolved in the beer. If the beer's temp was raised towards the end of
    fermentation ...

    I guess we'll just agree to disagree, but my 2 1/2 gallon batches have tasted good. My intent
    was not to prove you wrong, however, I just don't think this is the source of the O.P.'s

    I would never have thought that a significant amount of fermentation would occur at
    refrigerator temps.......You are probably right... not a lot at fridge temps. I guess I didn't
    realize you were talk...

    Guys, I have never had a beer that was from a batch size that is less that 5 gallons that I
    actually thought was really good.The 1 Gallon Brewers unite thread has 400+ pages of
    information that would ...

    The problem is you have no way of knowing how much work the yeast has completed on the sugar
    you added. If You added the appropriate amount of sugar for the carbonation level you want the
    best possibl...

    Cold crashing is how the majority of us do it, I believe. I wouldn't be too concerned about
    sanitation. Cold crashing is the only method I've used with my Mr. Beer "Little Brown Keg" and
    have never ha...
