So I don't have to worry about boil-off volumes? I thought because I'm working with half the amount, that I would need to add more wort to accommodate the same boil off.

It is in my garage with no outside access. I live in SoCal, so summer will make for a hot garage with the AC unit.

The reason for doing a half batch is space and equipment. I only have a 5 gallon rubbermaid for my mash tun.
Also, I'm new to AG brewing, so I don't want to screw up a big batch if I can avoid it.

Question. If I were to do a half batch, what container would you suggest using for secondary fermentation? I'm worried using the 5 gallon carboy would be too much air space and oxidize.

From all the calculations it looks like you mash with 10.94 quarts @ 162.5 (assuming room temp of 72).

Water

Can anyone help me with water calculations for this? I know it says boil size is 6.57 gallons, but how much water do you use for mash & sparge?
Oh yeah, also, this is my first time AG brewing.
