hey guys whats up?
I buy my beer kits from williams brewery(great company).
I use ther red ale kit which comes with 7lbs. malt, hops and liquid yeast.
I now harvest my own yeast from previous batches. which means I will be buying malt and hops seperate from a kit.Heres my question.most malts come in 6 or 8lbs.whats the protacol an extra pound of extract?should i still brew 5 gal or go to 6 gal.how do i determine the new starting gravity and will the fg be different from the 8 lb mix?
