One of my LHBSs sells little one gallon white plastic buckets with lids. They work perfect. You can get about 12 lbs of LME into one, they're easy to clean out, and they're dish washer safe.

Based on my experience, hop flavor and aroma will both be a bit dull, but then I've turned into quite the hop head.

I've got a local commercial IIPA on tap right now. The brewer claims it's...

Last night I drank some of my first batch that used all DME rather than all LME. The "homebrewy" taste is gone. Looks like I may be done with LME. Unfortunately, DME is a lot more expensive.

Jim Koch did it, but upon a little light research, it turns out he wasn't exactly the first person in his family to brew lots of beer.

Stick it in a bottle in the fridge. When the keg has room, toss it in.

Or, get one of those carbonator caps and force carb it right im the bottle, and then drink it. (Edit: Roger beat me to it.)

I froze some in zip-lock bags a couple months ago, and now they're staring to smell like the freezer. LHBS told me I should vacuum seal them. I agree.

My thoughts after throwing together a Cooper's IPA kit for my first batch are that if you adjusted the extra malt and total volume, and added flavor and aroma hops near end of boil, you should get a...

If you mean the pre-hopped Cooper's can, I don't think boil volume matters much. Hop bitterness has already been set in stone. My first batch was a Cooper's IPA, and aside from me adding too much...

Oooh yeah, I guess. We use a bur grinder now, so I was thinking from that angle, and how it would be harder to sanitize.

So uh, nevermind :D

None of the extract should boil off. Or at least, not enough to pique the interest of anybody but a really uptight chemist.


Then again, maybe we can get another boil argument going :D

The gas is going to throw you off. The larger surface area of the bottom of the pan is going to collect more heat than the smaller one.
