Worked out good. I got the idea from the “Closed System Pressurized Ferment” thread…
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f13/clos...chnique-44344/

Its effective for most normal gravity brews, where the increased OG in 4 gallons isn’t enough to stress or affect the yeast too much. You basically calculate out your recipe like you are brewing 5 or 5.5 gallons, and just ‘forget’ to put the last gallon in until after the ferment is done. Make sure you boil the water, not only to eliminate contamination but also to get rid of any oxygen that could cause the beer to go stale.

Not a problem, this is a duplicate thread anyhow. I didnít see the other one when I created this (sorry mods). At least someone got something beneficial out of it!

How hard is it to send a sample to a 3rd party lab to test the alcohol content? The whole suit seems to be based off of hearsay of a former AB employee. Is it possible that the law firm is withholding public information about a alcohol confirming lab test, because it is the main piece of evidence in their case? All seems kinda fishy to me, most likely a PR firm working against AB creating a media frenzy to knock AB down from it 39% market share!
