  2. Hey Danny. I dont live in an apartment. But SWMBO just had to have the damned glass top stove top. Now I cant do large all grain on my stove top anylonger. Since our gas range died. So for 4-5 Months out of the year Im doing smaller batches on the stove top because the glass top cant boil more than 4 gallons in a reasonable time or it shuts off. Do you have some good recipes for smaller batches?
