Edit: I found my answer Thanks though

One question I have about partial mashing. Most of the articles listed state brewing about a 3 gal batch. Would there be any negatinve effect to brew a PM in a 5 gal batch and where should you adjust your water quantity (during the mash or in the boil)? Thanks

I believe you would just adjust your water in the boil. I know you say you have found your answer and it seems to be partial mash but I just wanted to let you know I went straight from steeping to All-Grain and let me tell you I wish I would have just started with AG (did extract for 5 years). If you do nothing else buy a mash tun that is big enough to do all-grain cause your going to kick yourself when in a couple of batches you decide to go AG.

If you decide to get a cooler, go for the 10 gallon if you like to brew big beers. I have a 5 gallon and a 3 gallon mash tun. I wish I had a 10 gallon since I have a recipe to brew which has 14 pounds of grain. I think I will need the 10 gallon.
