    I am tasked with producing a red ale for a big local HomeBrew Fest in July. I have brewed 3

  • Posted in thread: How do you bottle your 1-gallon batches? on 01-19-2015 at 01:28 AM
    To avoid losing several ounces in the bottom of the bucket when I make my 1 gallon experimental

    beer compares.

    I paired Summer hops with Galaxy. The Summer hop is very mild and were somewhat obscured by the
    Galaxy. I bittered with Galena, paired Galaxy and Summer as flavor and aroma additions. The
    beer was ver...

    I've been down this road before. My advice is make a small 1 or 2 gallon batch. Don't waste
    alot of cash on malt extract and yeast in hopes that it produces a decent beer. I would
