I haven't tried it, but it should work. I have hopped an under-hopped batch in the fermenter,

So I under-bittered an ale and, while it's drinkable, it's also quite on the sweet side. I was

the brewing process. For example, does a one-gallon batch ferment any more quickly than a

Thanks for the advice. I figured once the stuff got settled to the bottom it would stay there.
