I've spent the morning doing some research, watching Houston get theirs ass's kicked, and drinking a great beer. I've been trying to find some info on brewing small batches, because I'm interested in experimenting with some different techniques and flavors and still have a control. So my plan is (rather than spend tons of money on growlers) get some 1 gallon apple juice jugs and use them as my primary/secondary "carboys". I'd like to hear what you folks have tried or if you have tried this. Specifically though, if I buy a 5 gallons worth of malt/yeast would it simply be dividing everything by 5 to spilt it up into 5 separate brews, or is it a bit more complicated than that. Also do you have any suggestions for pitching yeast on this scale when using White Labs yeast? Any thoughts/experience/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
If only I could quit my job, get the two year old twins to carry a carboy, I'd brew everyday!!!
