It really does take no time at all to make EdWorts' original recipe (if you don't count the several hours of cursing and searching for the StarSan that your family hid on you!)
Three quart "from concentrate" juice jugs (with Vitamin C added) $2.49 at the Walmart mega-center. Seven made for 5 & 1/4 gallons, I used it all having read how little krausen is expected with Montrachet .
21 quarts, 2lbs of corn sugar, one pack of Montrachet added exactly as proscribed; 1.060 OG, should be good for 8.5ish% if http://www.brewersfriend.com/abv-calculator/
is to be believed.
