so here's a 'dumb' question. to convert the 10 gal recipie to a 5 gal batch, do you just cut everything in half? is it really that simple???

thanks -

Yeah, pretty much. The hops utilization changes a bit, but not enough to worry about.

Here's one of my ambers I am liking right now:
7 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 62.22 %
2 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 17.78 %
1 lbs 4.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 11.11 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 8.89 %
1.50 oz Williamette [4.80 %] (60 min) (First Wort Hop) Hops 27.9 IBU
1.00 oz Williamette [4.80 %] (10 min) Hops 6.1 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [5.40 %] (5 min) Hops 1.9 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [5.40 %] (1 min) Hops 0.4 IBU
0.50 oz Williamette [4.80 %] (0 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops

I know 19% crystal seems like a lot, but it worked out great in this recipe. I mashed at 150, used nottingham ale yeast, and got 85% attenuation. If you use a less attenuative yeast, or mash higher, you could reduce the crystal to 12% or so with good results.

Thanks - i thought there was something in the conversion to do with hop utilization, but wasn't sure how much it mattered.

Looks like a good amber.

If you want someting special, try the Mojave Red recipe on this site at: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/mojave-red-112308/

I have personally brewed it and it is awesome. You can buy it in one click from brewmasterswarehouse.com under the recipe name Malticulous Mojave Red - All Grain in the American Amber style in their user-contributed recipe database. Not my recipe, but it does make a nice beer.
