Can you give any description as to why they weren’t very good, and/or maybe an overview of your process? I hate to say it, but if the 5 gallon batches weren’t very good, without tweaking some things, 1 gallon batches won’t be that good either.
The good news is, you’ve come to the right place. There are lots of brewers on here who make great beer, and give even better advice (just ask them/us about how good their/our advice is!). In addition, many have minimal equipment/gear/financial investment in the hobby, and still make awesome beer.
As far as knocking 1G batches, to me, its the equivalent of making a half-rack of ribs. Nothing wrong with it, but if I’m going to get all my $#!+ out, fire everything up, and invest time, I may as well make 10 racks and have some people over :mrgreen:
1G batches also were not a readily-available thing when I started a few years ago either. I can see how it might make sense to some people, so good on ya for making beer! :cheers: [/quote]
Looks like a new topic.
