[quote=“Detroit Funk”]Thanks everyone. Since I don’t have a way to measure the gravity, I will just have to rely on time in the fermentor. Three weeks seems like the consensus.
Side bar: has anyone gone to a secondary for a 1-gallon batch? Just curious as there is about an inch of goodies at the bottom of the beer and wondering if that’s having any effect on the taste.[/quote]
have never done a 1 gallon batch. But my personal view - don;t bother. for the carribo I am not sure you will get much (if any) benefit from a secondary. and if so, while most likely not going to happen, you just introduce the opportunity for more oxygen, more chances for contamination.
Not saying that if done properly doing a secondary will cause that. if you do it right 99% of the time you won’t. just saying it is just one more step I don;t think will give you enough benefits (of any) with this beer to even bother with.
BTW I don’t think taste wise it would matter
