Is a 5 hour brew day, cleaning, fermenting, cleaning bottles, bottling and 3-4 weeks of your
time really worth a few bucks on the side?

I reguarly bottle beer directly from my kegs. You have to be very careful though as there is a
multitude more places for bugs to hide. I use an empty keg to run cleaner/water/starsan thru
the beer lin...

Well I'm working in litres and each top off would be 1.3g. So just under 4gs post boil and
topped up to 5g in total. Might only need to top up my IBU by a few points. I take it when I

I JUST fall short of fitting a double batch in my kettle and want to make double batches to
