Sounds interesting. I have never done a full boil with extract so please correct me if I am wrong. I am assuming that I just calculate what I am going to boil off in a 90min boil in my 42qt kettle (1.5gal) so I bring 6.5g to a boil, remove from flame, add my fermentables, bring it back to a boil and hop accordingly?

It is slightly less since the extract adds some significant volume. There is probably a way to calculate, but I choose just to maintain my ignorance and boil for a few minutes before I start the hopping. I do not do late extract additions since I like to imitate my AG process wherever possible and I dont worry about color (which is the other plus of adding extract late, you get a lighter colored beer).

Otherwise, you are correct.

What is your standard water volume for a 5g full boil extract batch? I am going to use my banjo burner and polarware kettle to boil in

I use 6gal. It is too much for me as I boil off about a gallon. 5.75gal is probably about right with around 8lbs of syrups for me.

I've been trying to figure that out too, I'll be doing a full boil this weekend (my first one) and the pumpkin and syrups should add quite some volume.

I would add the pumpkin into the fermenter, should make things easier and make the pumpkin flavor stronger.

I was checking out the Breiss Hopy to be Gluten Free APA and it says to "mix syrup and water and bring to a boil" I am assuming that they mean bring the water to a boil first remove from heat add syrup then return to a boil. I know it is a dumb question but I have never used Sorghum or Brown Rice Syrup and want to make sure I treat it like LME.

You can really mix it whenever you want. It absorbs a little easier into hotter water. Same with LME.

I agree, I turn off the heat, stir it in then turn the burner back on and bring it to a boil.
