The recipe does not need to be adjusted, just the starting amount of water.can a 6 gallon bucket be used for primary fermentation?Best Answer: A 6.5 gallon bucket can be used, with good success, but be careful. I consider a blow off hose a must considering the kits 6 gallon starting volume.

There are a few extra steps, but each is explained in the instructions. If you've gotten through two brew already, you should be able to make this just fine.Can I turn this into ,Pliny the Younger? Suggestions on how?
I have already brewed this once. Loved it!!!Best Answer: We have not developed a recipe for this so any experimenting with the recipe would be uncharted territory. Pliny the Younger uses more hops for flavoring and aroma but the bittering addition would be about the same. The triple IPA has a starting gravity of 1.088, 88% apparent attenuation and 10.25% alcohol. This would be quite the challenging brew, but you could increase the malt additions as late boil additions and bump up the late boil hops as well to make this huge beer even bigger.Is this an extract or all-grain kit?Best Answer: This is an extract kit with specialty grains.What is the ABV for this brew?Best Answer: The ABV will vary slightly with this kit but you should be in the 7.5-8.2% range.Can a 6 gallon glass carboy be used for primary Fermentation?Best Answer: You could use a 6 gallon carboy, but will absolutely want to use a blow off tube. You see a appreciable loss of wort during active fermentation and at high krausen through the blow off assembly.
