    One sachet of dry yeast is sufficient. Order a bucket fermenter with your pot and your
    fermenter size is solved.

    I am even second guessing if I started with the 6 1/2 gallons I intended. I never measured the
    volume of my wort into the fermenter. In hindsight I should have put marking on my conical as

    report numbers:Ca=12...

    I don't agree that your BF numbers are close to the report you've obtained from the water
    district (in the general vicinity, but not overly close). There are some differences for sure,
    and your water ...
