great kit can brew 1 to 1.5 gallons
have the hop zombie ingredient kit going right now
making a negro modelo clone this weekend and then a dead ringer kit from NB next week. I usually try to do 1.25 gallons so I at least get a 12 pack
seems to work well for me
Nice link, just what I was looking for, a nice selection of 1 gallon recipe kits and reasonable shipping cost too. Thanks.

Big fan of 2.5 gallon batches. The 3gal better bottles are my fermenter of choice. Square shape is convenient too.

asked for their "4 pack of brews" for Christmas

Do you mind posting a link to the Negro Modelo clone or the scaled down recipe here?

Is the clone pretty close to the original? Negro is one of my favorite Mexi-beers if not my favorite.

I issued a temporary ban to Revvy for the above comments. While MrGrumpy's post wasn't exactly supportive or positive, and the conversation didn't necessarily benefit from his opinion, it wasn't outright rude - simply a member voicing an opinion. Forums are about sharing ideas and opinions, not crushing them. Carry on...nicely.

I'm seeing a lot of recipe scaling questions in the past few pages, and I know that people have already mentioned the advantages of brewing software, but seriously, having good brewing software solves so many of these problems. Maybe it would help if people would posting the software they use, a link, and maybe the cost?

I use Brewmate, its a free download, and its right here: http://www.brewmate.net/

I scale the recipes, then just round off or adjust the useless decimal places til I'm back in the OG range, and am ordering grains in a nice round number so my LHBS doesn't get exasperated.

I'd like to know how much liquid yeast to use in 4.25L with let's say regular OG around 1,060. Mr.malty tells me 0.5 packs of vial. That seems to be way too much seeing as I use 1 pack (either wyeast or white labs) for 23L and always had enough even at a 1,090 OG. I bought a California Ale (whitelabs) for a 1,060 OG ill be brewing sunday or monday... I'll seperate the quantity I need when its still cold (less risk of contamination..) So, how much ml should I use? I was gonna go with 1/4 of the pack wich is about 9 ml...

I brewed my first 4.25L batch 2 weeks ago... I used dried yeast (s-o5) mrmalty said 4g and it seems perfect.

I will be brewing again sunday or monday, but will be getting a 2g cooler by then. Mashing on the stove is not stable at all! I'll be posting pics in the next few weeks when I've got my low budget set-up all in place how I like it.

I agree. A good brewing software can make life easier. I use Promash, I bought it years ago before I was aware of any other systems. It work well for what I like to do. I can scale recipes, it tells me my mash volume, strike water temps and lastly the amount of total water I will need. I mostly take notes in a brew log but I do use Promash as a tool.
