Default Full 5 gallon boil

I have a Alaksn Amber extract kit from Austin Homebrew. I would like to do this as a full boil instead of just the 2 1/2 gals. Can anyone tell me what to do?
The recipe is as follows.
1/2 lb. Crystal 60L
1/2 lb. Crystal 90L
7 1/2 lb. Pale Extract
3/4 oz. Cascade
1/4 oz. Saaz
White Labs German Ale #00010

The recipe uses 2 1/2 gals. of water for steeping grain at 155 F and turn off heat.
Soak grains for 45 Min.
Return heat and bring to boil.
Turn off heat and add extract until dissolved.
Return to boil and add 3/4 oz. cascade hops for 60min.
Add 1/4 oz Sazz for last 15 min.

Cool wort to 80F
Pour mixture into fermentor add cool water to bring to 5 1/4 gallons.
Pitch Yeast.

Original specific Gravity: 1.054
Final Specific Gravity: 1.015

Thanks,

I have not done full boils yet. Have never had a wort chiller before now That being said, do you have a chiller to cool all that wort down? I have read over and over that the ice water in the sink method don't work with 5 galons. I can't imagine that you would need to do much more then add the water in the brewpot. If your boiling for 60 minutes I believe you should start with about 6 gals. Someone can confirm this quantity though.

Edit....
The recipe looks good.... not too sure you need both crystals though.

Yes, I have a wort chiller. My thoughts are exactly the same as yours. I just wanted to be sure before I did this.

Before you do it lets wait for someone to reply about the hops... I seem to recall someone doing a full boil and finding out that they needed to reduce the hops. In the meantime I'll do a search.... it was rather recent....

After adding the extract, add more water and heat to a boil. You should cut the cascades to 1/2 oz, but don't change the sazz. Sazz is a low AA hop, so at 15 minutes there won't be any noticable change in the bittering it would add.

No, I am not in any club. I am very new to this with only three batches under my belt. Will brew my fourth tomorrow. I have been thinking recently about inquiring about local clubs. I am sure it would be beneficial.
Are you a member?
