Hey all -- I couldn't find this in the FAQ... In the instructional DVD for the Essential Brewery in a Box, they claim that the batch size is 5 gal. which I believe translates to 54 bottles.
1) Is it possible to make a half-size batch, or even smaller, using all the standard included equipment? 54 bottles is a lot to throw out if I screw up a batch.
2) Also, is it necessary to refrigerate the beer immediately after bottling? Or once sealed could it be stable in warmer temps? I don't always have the fridge space for 54 bottles, but I do have a garage which I keep at 55 degrees? Or could it even stay at room temp?
