    ABOUT ME

  • Embarking on a new chapter in my home brewing career with 2.5g batches. Brewed traditional 5 gallon batches for approximately 5 years and then took a 3-year break. Excited for the new possibilities small batch brewing has to offer.
  • Friends had brewed for years. Always impressed with their beer. Invested so much over the years in buying beer, thought I might as well try to brew some myself. Started in 2008 with extract. Moved into All Grain in 2010.
  • All 2.5 gallon batches. A mix of beer, hard cider and mead.

    Easy enough to search around everywhere for small batch info (less than 5g) but it would be
    really nice for it to have its own section for organization. Like BIAB. Thank you!

    For the administrators:So i've decided to downsize to small batches upon my return to home
    brewing. I have been doing a lot of custom searches on the site to find info specific to small
    batches. Nothi...

  • Posted in thread: 2.5g All Grain Kit Sellers??? on 08-26-2016 at 03:53 AM
    Thank you! I am damn impressed with their selection. Simple but a ton of options.
    love2brew.comOnly thing is their shipping costs are sky high, you would need to order over $75
    to make it worth it.

    Does anyone know of online sellers that sell 2.5 gallon AG kits? Or are accommodating in
    splitting a 5g kit in half on their end? AHB doesn't appear that accommodating. Thanks.

    I'm no expert on this small batch stuff. Just now downsizing. But, I am wondering maybe if the
    7.5g kettle would have been better for 2.5g batches vice the 5.5. But owning a 10g, I wouldn't
    use. Seems...

    Is there anyway to reset the parameters back to square one? And then save it for myself? Looks
    like a lot of preset info in there. Thanks. Use Priceless BIAB Calculator..

    Thanks for doing that. I was assuming it would be something like that. I'm also on the fence
    about just converting a 5g cooler. I used a 10g during the old days. And while storing and
    transferring bet...

    If you are mashing in a cooler, I assume that means you aren't doing BIAB. Although I know some
    do both for small batches. Any preference when doing small batches? BIAB vs Cooler? Prob little
    differen...

  • Posted in thread: 2.5g batch equipment questions on 08-23-2016 at 04:17 AM
    Thanks!No, that can't be right. 5.4 lb grain will soak up about 0.5 gallons water, then you'll
    probably boil off roughly 1 gallon, and you'll lose perhaps 0.3 gallons in trub losses unless
    you use a t...
