I've heard the 60 was better now from more than a few brewers so ill make that one next.

Labrat, great idea. I'll be making a couple of go to kits today now!

what is your yield on a one gallon batch?

i use a one gallon glass carboy for my fermenters, and i always top out just a touch over a gallon on brew day

i'm getting about 6 pints, after loss to trub, and a little bit for hydrometers, etc.

it seems to me that i lose a lot, but maybe not, so i'm looking for comparisons

the batch i just bottled was EXACTLY 6 - one pint bottles + 1 hyrdometer, so i basically lost a quart of beer to trub, yeast cake, etc.

@Dads....Go Bears...

I'm brewing my 1-gallon Warrior SmaSH right now. I think I'm going to need a more sensitive scale that will read tenths of grams. I was measuring out my yeast and my regular food scale wasn't giving me an accurate reading...ugh. Oh well I'm moving forward...

EDIT: I bought a refractometer yesterday at the HBS...pretty excited to try it...I git tried of breaking glass hydrometers.
