One Gallon Brewing

With the growing interest in homebrewing have come a lot of people who want to brew but lack the space or equipment to brew on the typical homebrewer five gallon scale or simply do not want to sit on five gallons of every beer they ever make. A trend over the past few years is to scale down homebrewing to a fewer number of gallons, all the way down to one gallon. I am a big fan of one gallon brewing (along with two gallons, 2.5 gallons and three gallons) and I've carved out some space on my blog to discuss one gallon brewing. In the coming months I will continue to write more on the subject, including equipment set ups, recipe construction, brewing and some other useful information I've learned over a handful of years brewing on a smaller scale.
