Full boil questions
 
Does anyone here do full boil partial mashes? I really would rather do it this way. Something about it seems like it may make better beer. So my questions is how and can anyone give any tips I simply want to do 5-10 gallon full boil. I usually do partial mash brews from Austin homebrew.

I've done it. It's pretty simple. Add more water at the beginning before the boil, and then don't add water at the end. ;-)

Hop utilization can be affected.

I do it all the time. It is my preferred brewing style when indoors, but I use dual kettles. Learn the BIAB (Brew-in-a-bag) method. It makes things a lot easier. PM me for more details if you want.

I've also done it successfully. It really is as easy as adding more water to start.

To clarify, hop utilization will be increased, so you will derive slightly more bitterness from the same amount of hops.

I also did this during my transition from Extract to All Grain. Had the equipment for full boils but was a little hesitant to jump to all-grain for a few months.
