It seems that you should get at least 53 twelve ounce bottles from a 5 gallon batch. The most I've managed is 38 because of the bottom trub. Out of 4 batches I've had one bomb and two gushers. I think the priming solution calculated for a full five gallons was too rich. So it seems to me that I should either use about 70% of the recommended amount of sugar or brew 5-1/2 gallons in hopes of harvesting at least 5 gallons. Am I thinking logically? Your opinions appreciated.
