If I brew a recipe whether a kit or found online and it says its calculated for a 5 gallon batch, does that mean that 5 gallons is measured as:

-Total volume in the fermenter including trub?


-Volume in the fermenter excluding trub, dry hop absorption, etc.?

I don't want to fall short on volume and have an excessively bitter beer.

Total volume including trub.

Total Volume including trub, fill it to the 5 gallon mark on your bucket
