Default First time partial mash

This is my first partial mash I am planning on making 5 gallons but i only have a 4 gallon pot so I will have to do a partial boil. Im just wondering how much water to boil, how much to sparge with, and how much to add to the carboy to fill it.

I bet if you post a recipe, someone here would be nice enough to figure it out for ya.

As far as how much to add to the carboy, that I can answer. Add enough to make 5 gallons total.

I like to mash with about 1.50 quarts per pound of grain in a PM. That's 8.7 quarts total. So, mash with 8.7 quarts at 153 degrees. (Your strike water might need to be around 164 to get you to 153). After an hour, drain the runnings and measure them. You can sparge with up to .5 gallons per pound of grain. Since you have just under 6 pounds of grain, you can sparge with up to 3 gallons, or until you get your boil volume.

So, say you get 1.25 gallons or so from the mash. You can sparge with 2 gallons to get you to 3.25 gallons for your boil volume. If you get a little less from the mash due to grain absorption, you can use a little more sparge water.
