Mismatched Batch & BBT Sizes - Issues?
With the setup I'm working on, I'll be brewing 4bbl batches to begin with. Double brew days will allow me to fill 8bbl fermenters, so I've decided on an 8bbl brite tank for crashing and carbing. My question is regarding carbonation of smaller batches in the 8bbl brite. Aside from wasted CO2 in the headspace, am I going to run into problems doing 4bbl batches? What about smaller test batches of say 1.5 - 2 bbls? I though it might make sense to just naturally carb test batches in 1/2 bbls, as they will likely be served in the taproom, and not distributed. (where a tap account may not appreciate the extra yeast) Thoughts? What questions am I not asking here…..?
