Back of the envelope SWAG: Many, many thanks!Since this was a first experiment, I decided to go with one gallon (also because that's all the containers I have at the moment...)After consulting our local homebrew supplystore guy (who understandably shook his head at the piddly amounts), I ended up using (or rather, will use hopefully later this weekend)1 1/4 lb light dry malt extract3 oz Munich2 oz Honey1 oz Wheat and 1/5th oz Galena in the boilAlso, I think I might up the Cascade and Hood finishing hops a hair. As soon as I have time I'll bump up the kitchen capacity, hopefully soon enough that I can use the rest of that nice 1056 Wyeast!Hey, this stuff is fun! Youngest daughter helped me bottle my second batch (a cheapo kit modified with Crystal and Chocolate malts) today, and was very excited to get the tiniest taste. You know, I may only get 10 bottles to a one-gallon batch, but I don't want to drink a lot of beer - just good beer! ; )PS - Dumb question: What do you do with a half bottle of beer? Let it ferment with the rest? Discard or use for early tastering (it has a whole bottles worth of primer sugar in it). Just drink it right then? Will it explode?
