I only brew 2.75 gallon batches. This gives me a case plus a few. I like to experiment with different beers (build recipies using Beersmith) and 5 gallons is a lot of beer to drink if I don't like it.

Thanks,

I will probably continue with the same brand of extract making that a constant.

So if I wanted it to finish higher I would need a different type, not less yeast?

Capt,

That sounds interesting. I assume that is for a 5 gal batch? Is this grated ginger root or some sort of an extract? How much and what hops?

Sorry, I am full of questions on this one.
