3 Gallon Batches
« on: September 08, 2011, 08:28:09 AM »
Hello all first time caller long time listener


I am all grain brewing (3 batches in) and find all recipes are usually for 5 gallons or more.

I really only want to make about 3 gallons a batch, might not be economical, but I am not doing this to save money.


Are there any issues I don't know about when it comes to makeing 3 gallon batches?
