Hi all - new to the forum AND to brewing… I look forward to being a part of the family!
I have brewed one extract batch - 5 Gal, Amber Ale - and enjoyed the process and outcome. Not my favorite beer and I am sure I made some mistakes along the way, but I could tell I would really enjoy becoming a home brewer.
I recently acquired a 1 gallon set. My logic was I could practice and perfect on smaller quantities and experiment with concepts without ruining a full 5 gallons of beer.
Looking ahead, I am excited to try my first “Holiday Red” next week. For bottling, I also was interested in trying fliptop bottles (considering 16/32 oz). I was curious as to whether any particular concern or attention was needed when bottling with fliptops. For example, the priming tablets that come with NB kits - how do those get used with not bottling in 12oz increments.
I have a bottling system and just thought for storage and space saving the fliptops would be more convenient but I am open and interested in any feedback and suggestions you may have.
