Default High Altitude Brewing?

I was curious, since I spend a lot of time at altitude (7-10,000 feet) if brewing up there will be any different then at sea level. Is there any special directions/methods to follow?

You don't need to do anything special or different. The boil will be at a slightly lower temperature, but that's really inconsequential.

If you check out the brew science forum, you will see some of the adjustments we have to make. Nothing major, just some little things to pay attention to.
