Does anyone do partial boils/ partial mashes for 10 gallon batches?
I have a 5g Igloo MLT and a 1/4 barrel (7.5 gal) keggle that I currently use for AG 5 gallon batches. I think I want to step up to 10 gallons. Would it be okay to mash as much as I can in the 5G MLT, sparge as much as I can into the keggle, and calculate how much extract would be required for a post boil volume of 10g?
I also may have access to a 1/2 barrel keg, should I just wait until I can convert that to a keggle to avoid the hassle?
