This may have already been covered and I just couldn't find it. I have only been brewing for a couple months now and decided to go with 5L kegs. The two gallon recipes fill one keg plus four bottles. I really want to get it down to filling two kegs and maybe two 500 ml bottles (only bottling to allow easier sampling by my friends/neighbors). So, my question(s) is this:
- I like pilsners such as Urquell, ales such as 1776 or Dales, and Kolsch's. Looking at 2 gallon recipes linked below, is there a way to increase it to 3 gallons with using things such as an extra DME soft pack? If not, how would I go about increasing the fermenting volume to about 3 gallons while preserving the intended taste?
