i have read on here that you can divide up the boil if you do not have a big enough pot, but i havent found much detail on it.
heres the situation (no im not from NJ)
i ONLY have one 3 gallon pot and london porter recipe from AHS.
the recipe calls for boiling 2.5 gal then mashing the grains in that, then i would have to sparge another .5 gal, which brings me up to 3 gal(the size of my pot).
after this it says to put all wort back into pot so i can continue to add my 3 lbs of DME, hops, etc. which would obvioulsy overflow my pot.
question is, after adding the sparge water into my mash tun(now at 3 gal) and mixing it evenly, can i pour, say 2 gal, back into my pot to dissolve the DME and add hops....boil for necessary amount of time, then be able to pour the 2 gal of wort and the remaining 1 gal in the mash tun into my bucket to add the yeast then ferment?
or will this not mix correctly?
sorry if this is confusing.... i confused myself.
thanks for any help!
