1 gallon recipes

Postby Gchristian6912 » Tue Jan 28, 2014 7:52 am

Hi! I'm new to home brewing so I am just brewing smaller 1 gallon batches (unfortunately because I don't have much space) I was wondering if anyone could either recommend a way to break down 5 gallon batch recipes or recommend some good 1 gallon batch recipes. Thanks!!!

NorthernBrewer has several recipes in a 1 gallon scale.

You can also just take regular recipes and divide the ingredients list by 5.

I would make a 5 gallon batch, then divide the wort into 6 different batches, into 1 gallon jugs like http://morebeer.com/products/glass-jar- ... iters.html and cap http://morebeer.com/products/screw-cap- ... -hole.html
this way you can use different dry hops, different yeast, different ferment temps, different spices, experiment.
ON TAP:
1. 1C
2. 4B
3.
4.
5.
6.
Bottled: Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, 16B, 18B, 18E, 19B, 20, 21A, 23, 27
Fermenting:
Next: 5C

BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.

I regularly made 2.5 gallon batches in a studio apartment for a couple years. easy peasy, just cut "normal" 5-gal batches in half.

going all the way down to 1 gallon... so much work for, what, 10 beers? you can do it, for sure, but turbo's suggestion is pretty good.

Even if space is tight, I'd do my best to make a batch that netted me 3G and get a 3 gallon keg, paint ball sized Co2 bottle and faucet off of beverage out with that little restrictor deal. Then you could have kegged beer (no bottling) served on tap all in a compact package that fits in a standard fridge...throw the milk out to make room. :D
