    Hex - in regards to the orange peel you used, was it fresh peel, or the dried stuff you can buy
    in home brew shops? Or was it zest? Also, you used Wyeast forbidden fruit (3463) as well? Did
    you think ...

    BTW, there's a whole thread on here somewhere with helpful thoughts on smaller batches. I think
    it's titled something like "1 gallon brewers unite"

  • Posted in thread: Smaller batches using 5 gallon equipment on 01-13-2016 at 02:57 AM
    Some reasons I can think of for why to use smaller equipment:1) easier to cleanup2) better to
    minimize headspaceBut generally, no, it won't have a "huge" effect.

    OP, I know the forum topic is AG and PM brewing, but we should confirm whether you're talking
    about an AG batch, before discussing the effects of efficiency.

    I would like to see your spread sheet please before I build this.Try the link below and let me
    know if you run into problems. Some notes:[*]B1-B12 are meant to be edited to match your

    So if I build a displacer, help me here, am I forgetting anything? The height of the displacer
    only needs to be a litter higher than the height of the top of the boil coil. I only need the
    same cleara...

    Anything that displaces will provide some assistance. Even something sealed that is not as high
    as the BoilCoil (like a kettlebell) would be helpful - but it's a matter of how much. I
    generally agree ...

    Doing a 5 gal batch on a 10 gal system isn't the eazyest thing to do. Here is what I do hope it
    helps.I do a 90 min boil on all my 5gal batches witch gives me more water to cover the boil
    coil. I also...

    Good point. Why not vent it w/ a piece of SS tubing? High enough, heavy/strong enough and
    shaped correctly it could also act as a handle to lift once the mash tun was
    removed...Removable top or a seco...

    How about a sealed displacement vessel? Pay a friend (in beer, natch) to weld closed a 1 or 2
    gallon pot?When I pondered that one, the concern I had was if the vessel were too thin it might
    burst due ...
