20 gal batch turned into a 14 gal batch...

I really wanted to brew that 20 gallon batch, but, it just wasn't in the cards. Instead I brewed a 14 gal batch of IPA with three ounces of the freshly picked mostly dry homegrown hops at flame out. What didn't fit in two carboys went into a bucket fermenter with some plastic wrap over the top. I couldn't find the stupid lid.

Also, I pitched the yeast slurry from the starter beer I brewed the other day. So in retrospect, I have close to twenty gallons of beer. 14 gallons of fresh IPA and 4.5 gallons of a pale ale that I should probably dry hop or maybe just keep it around for those light beer drinkers. Not a bad brew day :-)
