Possible to do a 1 galbatch in the LBK?

Recommended Posts

Dear BeerBorg :borg: ,
Are there any issues with brewing a 1 gallon batch in the LBK, so long as I cool the wort down to room temp before pouring it into the LBK? I just purchased the Brooklyn Brewshop book and many of the recipes are scaled for either 1 gallon or 5 gallon batches. I know I could also likely just scale them for 2.5 gallons as well, but just curious if I wanted to do a 1 gallon batch for sampling purposes if there would be any issues. Thanks!

Probably, don't see a big issue with it. A lot of headspace isn't really good for the beer but that is more typical if you were to rack to a secondary vessel. I would just recommend doubling the recipe to adjust for the 2 gallon batch.

Yeah I'd make a double batch if I was using 1-gal recipes.
It's really very little work to make a 2-gallon batch, I can't imagine a 1-gallon batch being much easier/faster.
