Brewed my first "one gallon" batches yesterday...actually a lot of fun and quite a bit different than the 5 gallon batches. My first time doing BIAB too. It's nice to be able to work in the kitchen instead of the garage on a cold day.

Ended up brewing a total of 3 gallons of "jalapeno cream ale" recipe from this site and put into three one gallon carboys. Going to kick up the spice in one of the gallons with Serrano peppers when I move to secondary. Testing habanero in the third. It may be too much, but it's only a gallon.

Overall, I see myself doing a lot more of these one gallon batches, especially for the more intensely flavored beers. I'm glad this thread is here.

Cheers...

so, you started with a three gallon boil, and then divide it out into separate batches?

Yes...same base brew, but will play with different additions once I move to secondary. I think it will be fun to bottle up and sample with friends...assuming they can tolerate the heat.

Went really well. I need to order the low watt density element as I had some burning on the hwd element. But hit my numbers and no major issues.

My English Mild of sorts, no hops in the boil, just whirlpool for ~5 IBUs using EKG. 1.030 SGish. Nice session ale, sparkling clear in bottle but kicked up trub with aggressive pour

Got a pair of 10 oz pilsner glasses at Kohls today for 5 bucks after a coupon. They're nice and dishwasher safe

That's really not enough IBU to be considered an English mild. Not sure what that would be.

Was at Sams' for something else today, the syrup is like 13.86 for the 32 oz container.
