Absolutely! Just be sure to reduce the amount of extract added to the half-batch.

Are you planning to add the juice to the secondary, or at bottling time? A gallon of juice
seems like an awful lot. Lots of people add a couple of pounds of cherries or puree to the
secondary and rack...

I brew at about 6,700'. I'm not so sure that the hops utilization is reduced at all. While it's
true that your wort will come to a boil at a lower temp (less 200 degrees where I am), I
believe it's th...
Posted in thread: Taste of My Beer 2 Weeks Since Brewing on 03-01-2008 at 10:26 PM
Two weeks is way too soon to judge a beer. Be patient. Leave it for three more weeks, at least,

Posted in thread: Correct Brewing time on 02-29-2008 at 11:12 PM
Lots of us use the "1-2-3" method, as in one week in primary, two weeks in secondary, and three

in trub at t...

much buy all that equipment brand new for what he's charging used, maybe even for less.If the

Not quite sure how to "properly" age in bottles. Do you leave it at room temperature for
awhile, move to a colder area for awhile, then leave it in the fridge for a few days before
drinking? Yup. Gene...

Anyone ever use a growler tap for handled 2 liter swing-top growlers like this one: believe it
works simply by pumping air into the bottle. I'm not thinking of using it to keep the beer
fresh and car...

I use my dishwasher exclusively for washing my bottles, and have never had any problems
whatsoever. Of course, I always rinse my bottles very thoroughly immediately after emptying
them, so that all th...
