I think O2 is overrated. I'd get a mill - a Corona is only $30.

Exactly - think about Budweiser - there's nowhere to hide any flaw. Stouts, porters and IPA are
all good at hiding fermentation errors, because they have strong flavors. This is why many

Posted in thread: what is the max gallon I can brew with a 30 gallon system on 08-30-2016 at 03:13 PM
Totally depends on the size of the beer. Your limited by what you can mash, not boil. So you

You can do it - but not with bottle conditioning. If you try it I would overpitch a ton of
yeast - ideally a big ass starter at full krausen. Give it from day 2-5 to ferment and package
on day 5, leav...

Higher ABV = Longer fermentation, as a general rule. It's done when it's done.

Typically you should take readings over a couple of days to be sure - but 1003 is pretty low.
You should be fine. I'd test one at day 5. Saison yeast is pretty aggressive and can certainly
