Doesn't need secondary. Just keg it and purge. I generally store cold but if your cleaning methods are up to scratch then no problem storing at room temp in the keg.

Is a 5 hour brew day, cleaning, fermenting, cleaning bottles, bottling and 3-4 weeks of your time really worth a few bucks on the side?

Its not that concentrated. A Revvy says he basically does a half half mix and I'm only topping up by a quarter.

Think I have it nailed.

In the end I'll end up with

Is there a dilution tool in beersmith to work out the IBU's or just gravity?

I only need to add a small amount of water to the end result so the 18% figure would be way out for me.

I JUST fall short of fitting a double batch in my kettle and want to make double batches to split into two fermenters to save the hassle of double or two brew days for the same amount.

Anyone here...

Carb at the higher end and bottle it in champagne bottles. You will just need some new cheap caps and a $6 bell for your capper. Much easier, stress free and worthy of your better beers.

Did you use thread tape on the back of the tap shanks? I've found that the most likely place to leak beer slowly.
