First timer here. Well, actually I’m starting my second batch.
I’m doing 1 gallon kits right now and my question is about adjusting for boil off.
Instructions for my NB 1 gallon kit calls for 1.25 gallons to start but with my first batch I boiled off over 2 qts. I had some other water boiled so I just added a little before cooling to get close to a gallon in the fermenter. Fermenting seemed to go well and it’s in bottles now.
What would be the best approach on my second try?
Start with more water in the boil kettle or just top it off after boiling like the 5 gallon kits recommend?
