Default Convert 5 gallon recipes to 1 gallon

Is there any easy way to convert 5 gallon recipes down to 1 gallon? Can I just divide everything by 5? I only ask because I have a 2 gallon bucket from first entry into homebrewing and I wanted to do a strong English Ale. If anyone has a good Strong Ale (extract only for now) I would be open to seeing it.

Just divide everything by five, it'll get you close enough to where you need to be.

Except for the yeast. If you're using liquid yeast, you'll probably be fine pitching the whole vial. Check mrmalty.com and go to the yeast pitching calculator to make sure!

But you boil and steep for the same time durations and temperatures, right?

Man you are going to be sooo disapointed when you bottle that and only get 8 or 12bottles. And it turns out soooo good. But if you want more you have to wait another 5 or 6 weeks.

I suggest doing 5 gal. It won't spoil, and you can give it away if you don't want to drink it all.

Yes, steep and boil same time.

8 -10 twelve ouncers is the max you will get.

i do one gallon brews and if i like it i make them in larger quantity's. and sometimes i am glad i made a small batch. but when everyone likes it, and wants another, their isnt enough to go around. i mostly do them for trials because all my brewing is off the top of my head.

I am doing 1 gallon all-grain brewing. I would like to convert 5 gallon recipes to one gallon. Most of the Recipes are 6 gallon batches. I think dividing by 5 makes sense but want to make sure i shouldn't be dividing by 6.

Thank you,
Oddcarout

Any idea if BeerSmith2 will convert an all grain recipe to partial mash? I've seen it do AG to extract....
