Converting recipe
 
Hi guys, I found a recipe online that I'd like to brew but it is for 6 gallons. My brew pot can handle full boils for 5 gallons no problem, it would be iffy for 6.

My question, should modify the hop schedule? I can do the math for the grain bill.

It's a green flash ipa clone.

I would not modify the schedule but I would modify the hop amount by adding 20% for each addition. Same with the grain bill.

Please let me know how this turns out. I love that beer. Where did you find the recipe?

I will post it when I figure it out. I found it on the can you brew it podcast. One of my favorite beers as well!

Oops, sorry read it wrong. Was doing some quality control testing on an apa tonight. Then decrease the hop amounts by 16.6%.
