Shrink recipe 6.5 gal. to 5 gal?

I'm about to brew a Papazian recipe, Limnian Wheat Doppelbock has anyone tried it? Anyway, his recipe is for 6.5 gallons using a 4 gallon boil. I'd like to reduce the recipe to 5 gallons. How do I reduce the recipe without altering the end result? I'd like to boil at 3 gallons. If you haven't figure...

I used my tap water, which I've brewed with before without any off flavors. I used a stainless steel pot for my brewing, which I've used before without problems. The only difference is this time the entire batch was boiled in the pot, whereas previous partial mash brews only required a port ion of t...

Metallic Flavor, Hazy, 1st All Grain botch

Help! I've created a monster. Or maybe it's an unfinished fermentation? Mash didn't yield enough sugars? My 1st all grain batch and I'm working off a recipe for a brown ale. I just put it into the keg after secondary fermentation. The OG was 1.057, SG is 1.032. The OG seems to me like it should have...

Thanks

Thanks for the link. I decided to buy a regular mini-fridge, which I will adapt with a top mounted tap in the future. For now, I open the door to get to the "party tap." Glamorous? No. Functional? Very!

Premade Kegerator?

I'm thinking of buying a ready built kegerator from Best Buy http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6376405&type=product&id=1077624868180 . The tap comes out the top, it come with hoses and a pressure gauge and a CO2 tank, it's nice looking stainless steel. But it's a Sankey setup, and I put ...

Bizarre Contamination

My beer is sitting in primary. It bubbled strong for about 3 days, had a day of every 30 seconds or so, and yesterday it was maybe every 2 minutes. I'm going to put it into secondary today. BUT yesterday, I was being stupid and pushed on the lid of the fermentor to squeeze bubbles through the air lo...
