Well actually I did 4 gallons because the directions said that without dme I'd need to.
It was ironmaster american light... and I'm pretty psyked. in a week I'll secondary it to glass carboy and let her sit for a week or two.

I need to buy an auto siphon though....
Are some better than others?
can I Bottle with my mr beer kegs? my bucket is a fermenter without a spigot....
aka I have no other option .. I might drill a hole in my bucket later and use that for a fermenter and bottle bucket....

Conditioning: coopers ipa
Conditioning: Niagara brewing honey-brown
Conditioning: TB Pilsner

Fermenting: Niagara brewing belg triple
(c.dante customizations added)
Fermenting: True brew Red Ale

I've only seen one type of auto-siphon, just in different lenghts. They work just fine. Yes, you can bottle with the Mr Beer, or you could remove the spigot from the Mr. Beer, drill a hole in your larger bucket and use it that way (if the shank is long enough).

Good Luck on that first batch.
