That's how much you need.

First time I only made a gallon, when I racked it to the second jar, it tasted so good that it never got to mature.

Now I make it in bigger batches so that a few bottles get to the year point Grin

Oh also, too late for you but anyone else reading.... CLOSE THE WINDOWS BEFORE YOU BREW!!!! Unless you like bees. Really really like bees.

Have you tried metheglin? Basically mead with ginger or whatever herbs you care to add.

I'm still a newb so only got Joe's ancient orange going right now, been doing about 2 gallons a weekend.

First batch little over a month old but I took a taste, pretty bitter so far. I assume from the orange rind, I'm hoping in another month it will balance.

Soon as I get the new house settled I'm going to buy a couple of 5 gallon glass carboys ffor primary and secondary fermentation.

I have a dozen 1 gallons.... I used to have a 5 g plastic one but it blew up when I was making stout. Nightmare! Not made beer since.
