    Understanding Brewing Volumes

    I have seen several questions lately regarding volume at various stages of brewing. I hope the following helps someone make sense of it all. It's long, but pretty thorough. I think it's comprehensive and easy to understand. If anyone has suggestions to make this better, I'm open to editing...

    Can a yeast starter be too big?

    I'm making yeast startrs using a stir plate. My starter wort has an OG of 1.040. I'm growing up a yeast sample that has few viable cells in it (liquid yeast and fermenter sludge several months old, sediment harvested from a bottle, etc.) What is better in this case: starting with a small...

    OG too high, can I add water? (BIAB)

    On pretty much all of my batches I've been going off of the recipe boil size when I start my mash, so if the recipe says boil size is 7.5 gallons that's what I put in my kettle when I start to heat the water for the mash. Pretty much all 3 or 4 batches I've done so far have resulted in lower...
