Posted in thread: One Gallon All Grain brews to kill time! on 02-21-2013 at 12:15 AM
I have made 2 gallon BIAB on my stovetop with my 5 gallon brewpot. Works quite well and end up

I bet it will be a great Kolsch though. Homebrewing I try not to get too stuck on style
guidelines. As long as the beer tastes good and gives a buzz I don't care.

I have always just used tap water and my beer comes out great. I guess we have good tap water.
A lot of microbreweries and brewpubs in our area. I doubt they use bottled water to make 200
gallon + bat...

Just a warning. You should not use the propane burner in an enclosed area like your basement.
These burners are intended for outdoor use. You would need a vent hood and air circulation to
