few weeks ago, I cooked up a pale ale recipe that I want to do some playing with... however, I don't feel like tossing off 5 gal batches on experiments.

Can I just take the same recipe I used and cut everything in half and have the same results? Or are there more advanced calculations I need to do?

Nope, just cut everything in half, except yeast and times of course. That's what I use my Mr. Beer for.

Or you can brew five gallons and split it into different vessels and have a "control batch"
