I was thinking about doing a series of test batches, either 2L or 1 gal, just to familiarize myself with the way that different hops interact with one another.
What kinds of vessels should I consider for fermenters? I've got thin plastic distilled water jugs (1 gal) and I can get plastic 2L bottles easily enough. I'd love to get the glass jug from a gallon o' Gallo, but there's no way I could choke down enough crappy wine to get enough bottles in a decent amount of time. Maybe I should host a bottom shelf wine theme party... dress as a hobo, drink for free
Anyone have experience with this? What was successful? What should I avoid?
