It went really well. Not much difference from the 5 gallon batches expect I had more time to kill with the 90 minute mash and 90 minute boil. It really went very smooth, I had the right amount of wort into the kettle and came out with exactly 10 gallons when I was done. My numbers where close, I ended up with 1.049 preboil and 1.054 into the fermenters. My only problem was the first 24 hours of fermenting were way to warm, around the 75 degree range. I then cranked the temp all the way up in my second fridge and put the carboys in there, now they are at 62-64 for the remainder of the fermentation. I did take a little sample and while it smells like banana city it didn't taste as strong as it smelled.

Some pics from the day.







The boil:

I love doing 10 Gallons myself! My only suggestion is to make sure you have a good chiller. When I started with 10g, I only had a 25 foot copper IC with tap water. It took forever to get my wort down to 70*F.

With out temps in the high 90's it was a bitch but I have found that whatever my temp is for the coolant I get about 3-4 degrees higher for the exiting wort. As soon as our temps dip in the 80's I should be good.
