    MiniYoda got a reaction from Brian N. in One Gallon Glass Fermenter?   
    no, you still need the two gallon fermenters for those recipes.  These are good for making 1 gallon all-grain batches.  One thing you could do, though, is get two of them, make a regular recipe from Mr. Beer, and split it between the two fermenters.  Then you could experiment by dry hopping one with one type of hops, and the second with a different type of hops.

    You could do standard recipes.  Just call them all "Imperial".  🤩

    I've made the Chantilly Lace before, and first thing.....yours came out amazingly clear.  Congrats.
     
    Mine came out malty too, and I thought about adding a dry hop to offset it if I do this recipe again.  Secondly, yes, many of Mr. Beer recipes come out darker than they advertise.  Personally, color doesn't matter, because I can't taste or smell color.  I just chalk it up to "it's an ale, and ales are amber".
     
    Having said that, there will be a flame war about colors of beers, colors of ales, and colors of lagers.  But to me, the color and clarity of your beer looks great.

    Ok so I just tasted the Chantilly Lace I brewed.  Turned out good.  A liitle malty for my taste but I'm sure it tast like it is suppose to and my wife likes it too.  It is not the color I was expecting, much darker.  I thought it would be more like SRM 3 - 5 in color.  Has anyone else made this and if so how was yours?  All and all it is the best tasting beer of the three I have brewed so far so I will chalk it up as a success!  Next out of the fermenter is Diablo IPA and an American Lager standard.

    You have to collect the co2 that comes out of your beer, and then use that to fill the tank

    The carbonation has to come out, one end or the other.
     
    The only thing better than a 5 second burp in front of your wife is to wake your wife up at 1am, cover her head with the covers, and yell FIRE IN THE HOOOOOOOOOLE for 5 seconds.

    Durn.  Was hoping that I could ferment at a 72, as that is the coldest I can keep my apartment without going bankrupt.  Yes, I can use ice bottles.  I might be doing that, but for now, the brewery is closed.  I'd like to experiment on ciders prior to Autumn, so that they will be ready for the prime apple picking season and family holidays.
     
    Someone on the broadcast asked about cider recipes, and I mentioned the recipe database.  I started the thread as "database", but it probably will stay as a spreadsheet..........at least for a while.  It is located here:
     
    http://community.mrbeer.com/topic/35926-creating-a-recipe-database/?do=findComment&comment=469952
     
    Open the spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel, and with <CTRL><F> do a search on Hard Cider.  There are 8 entries, and the one that catches my eye the most is the Mulled Cider.  I might make this one, but order the mulling spices that come with Yule Like This Ale instead of having to deal with what the grocery store sells.  Carmel Apple, Hopped Apple, Blueberry Apple, and an "apple pie" with grains all are on the list of recipes to attempt.

    Or put it in a secondary vessel with some Brettanomyces yeast and age it for 6 months. The brett will consume the off-flavors as well as the dead yeast cells. It's also a natural antioxidant and will prevent oxidation. Of course, you'd have to like the funky flavors that brett creates (I know I do). It can be an acquired taste.

    Best thing to do now is build a still and distill it into 'shine.

    Has anyone brewed this one yet?  The recipe looks great as is, but I'm thinking of partial mashing it with some Maris Otter and maybe a specialty malt or two.
