Default 10 gallon batch from 5 gallon recipe?

If I took two 5-gallon recipes and doubled them could I brew them together in one pot to make a 10-gallon batch? Thanking about Cream Ale from DeFalco’s.

5-gallon recipe;

4 1/2 lbs. light unhopped malt extract
1 1/2 lb. Brewery Grade Corn Syrup
1 lb. domestic six-row pale malt
1/2 lb. cara-pils malt
1/2 lb. flaked maize (corn)
1 oz. U. S. Hallertauer hops (bittering)
1/4 oz. Cascades hops (flavoring)
1/4 oz. Cascades hops (finishing)
1 pkg. Burton water salts
1 pkg. Windsor ale yeast (or Wyeast #1056/#1007 or White Labs American or German Ale Yeast)
1 pkg. Bru-Vigor (yeast food)
O.G. - 1. 048 F.G. - 1.010

Thanks in advance,
Bill

Yes. On this scale doubling your ingredients will be fine.

Yup, I'd simply double the ingredients for this particular recipe. Skip the salts - you don't need them when brewing with extract.

Sign up for the free beersmith software. You can enter your recipe and then scale it to anything you want and it will adjust the ingredient amounts for you. Though in your case just doubling is easy. I like to take a lot of 5 gallon recipes and scale them to 6 gallons to ensure I get 5 gallons in my keg after loss to trub, racking etc.
