I brewed NB's Dead Ringer IPA earlier today. The recipe called to boil 1.25 gallons of water. I wasn't sure how my electric stove would do since this was the first time I was using it to brew, so I just went with a 1 gallon boil. Luckily for me, I remember to mark off my bucket and noticed I was a bit short of the 1 gallon mark......a quart shy, so I had to top off. LOL!.

Exactly! That's how I did it.

I just realized I have 5 batches bottled. I was going to make a few batches this weekend, but just realized I might run out of bottles! How many regular homebrewers have thus kind of selection?
+1 to 5 batches bottled. I love having the variety small batch brewing provides, plus I get my fix every week with a new creation!

I currently have 6 batches bottled, if you count the applejack. Plus 2 leftover partials from older batches.

Woot, for variety.
