Default 5 Gallon Gumball Head Batch

Hey guys! I'm new to brewing (which is the greatest thing ever), I've been learning on the kit batches, but I'm ready for something a little more tasty and challenging. I've looked around here for a Three Floyds - Gumball Head clone, but only found 10 gallon recipes. My batch would only be 5 gallons. How would I calculate a 10 gallon recipe to 5? A nudge/punch would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and if you've tried any variation to the GBH clone that isn't on here I'd love to check it out. Cheers!

I have had pretty good luck with recipes from this site. It lets you scale recipes.

Not to be a smartass, but maybe half everything in the 10g recipe? I know someone that did the recipe and said it was delicious. Personally I would add a bit of citra hops at flameout (.50 oz or so) and also to the dryhop. Citra has some amazing flavor/aroma. It is on my "to brew" list.

Well, if the recipe is for 10 gallons, divide it by half.

If you are new to brewing, let me suggest that you buy Brewsmith. Its only about $20 and is an awsome program that allows you to make your own recipes, scale everything convert from all-grain to extract.

btw, I am heading to 3 Floyds in a couple hours to do a brewery tour.

I'll ask about the different hops they use for GBH. I'll see if they do use citra.

Let's see.

10 divided by a half = 20

or did you mean half the batch size?

That would be 10 divided by 5.
So it would be 2

Wait, I'm confused. Didn't he want a 5 gallon batch?

So I went to the brewery yesterday. They said that they definitely use Amarillo.

Also, I have seen other recipes on here using S-05.. they use an American Wheat.

Pretty cool tour though.

They don't use Citra, I was just saying it would work well with the recipe.

Ill be heading to 3 Floyds in a couple weeks for the tour. Then back in April for Dark Lord Day.
