1 Gallon Brew

Post by Grumbler » Thu May 25, 2017 5:40 pm

Hi, I've just done an IPA all grain on my stove top. I cold crashed the pot to 23 degrees then filled my demijohn. There is a deep, thick layer of crud at the bottom. I'm tempted to syphon off the clearer wort and top up with water. Is this a sign of a lack of strike water? I only just had enough to fill the fermenter. More liquor equals less crud I imagine.

I'd leave it alone. When I've done 1 gallon brews there has always been relatively more trub than when doing 20L. When you bottle you can leave it all behind.
