    Hi All!!!

    I am in PA and I have been a brewer for about 12 years. I used to brew for alcohol content but now I am more of a refining brewer. I usually test a new batch with a 1.5 gal brew and then move up to a 2.5 gal batch with minor changes. Once I feel it is really good I make a full 5 gal run. I love to share my beer with fellow brewers for their comments and suggestions or changes. My neighbor is also a brewer so we test each others beer. I am still bottling but I am interested in learning more about kegging and starting to obtain supplies for that as well.

    I have entered some competitions for my Angry Pumpkin and my Triple Hopped IPA. My IPA did not turn out a good as I hoped so it is back to the 1.5 gal batches to improve upon that recipe for next time. My Pumpkin has ranked up there in the 40's most of the time.

    I look forward to talking to you all here!

    Welcome to the fold. I like the 1.5 gallon idea for refining a recipe.

    Just to make sure you are aware, there is a scale feature in the recipe editor. Under recipe tools -> scale, that will automatically adjust the recipe to a new target batch size.
