    Seems to me that soda bottle would start to bulge if it gets too much co2. Just crack the lid
    to release some gas.Heh, thanks, but it's the 40 capped glass bottles I'm most concerned about.

    If your gravity was stable for 4 days and you added only the priming sugar the kit came with
    then you did it right and it will be fine. Don't worry about the FG estimate. That's just a
    rough estimate ...

    Ah, ok. I have a scale: I'll start using it. :)

    I used a prepackaged kit made up by my local brew supply shop. I'm not sure how much sugar was
    in the packet, but I'd guess about 1/4 cup, maybe? Boiled into 2 cups of water, cooled, then
    added to the...

    So I bottled my first batch ever last night. The gravity reading had been 0.010 for 4 days
    straight (the FG was estimated to be at 0.008, though). As suggested by Palmer's HOW TO BREW, I
    filled a 20oz...

    So, correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears that with BIAB there's no more trub than with
    extract brewing. Which means, I really don't have to worry about secondary fermenting - - for a
    1 gallon batch...

    LOL jwalk4, that's EXACTLY what I'd read. :) You're good. Thanks for alleviating my fear and
    pointing me to suggested applications!

    I didn't know what BIAB meant and had to look it up... Whoa! Cool! :) Gah! More stuff to learn!
    ;) The idea of having to fudge and estimate the additional grain to compensate for the lack of
    tun (?) b...

    I do 1 gal batches from time to time. Especially, when I'm trying something new or something
    that I only enjoy in small quantities, like a porter or a big belgian. I usually do AG using
    the BIAB metho...

    So I just got my first brew going and in the fermenter. 5 gallons made from an extract kit put
    together by my local home brew supply store. But only just recently have I heard of 2.5 and
    even 1-gallon...
