Darkbrood, thanks for the additional information. Will definitely take into consideration.

Thanks
I would take it with a grain of salt, actually.

It is specific to All-grain 1 gallon batches. It documents many beers according to which season you should make them. Overall some great recipes.

To compensate for lower efficiency I found it was more close if I divided the grain amounts by 4 instead of 5. But it depends on your equipment and process. If you plan on doing extract, mash efficiency is a non issue. Use a beer software like QBrew to help you with figuring out IBUs and Original Gravity. You want to come close to the gravity and bitterness of the original recipe. Being off a bit is OK. There's more to making beer than just a recipe, but with small batches it's easier to make better beer with less effort since pitching enough yeast is also easier.

Hops freeze well, so there isn't any waste at all.

Brew more!

Seriously though, I vaccuum seal by recipe now, it was the best idea I have had in a while, I can just throw them in the fridge until I need them

Yooper, how long do hops keep when frozen (pellet vs. whole)? I'v e heard stories about them absorbing freezer smells even when sealed in ziplocks.

My freezer is filled with ICE, ice packs (to cool fermentations), hops and a few pints of ice cream. There's no freezer smells to absorb.

I use those vacuum sealer bags from my foodsaver. I've kept hops for years and years without any issues. Some I think might be from 2006.

I got a college mini-fridge only for hops and storing a few beers...you could easily find one outside of your local college in september if not for super cheap at a store
