I found a recipe that I want to try. The problem is that it is set up for 10 gallons and I can only do 5. Cutting the grain bill in half is easy enough. But what do you do when you get to the hops?
The current recipe calls for
0.90 oz. Horizon at 60.
1.00 oz. Amarillo Gold at 15.
1.00 oz. Amarillo Gold at 0.

Do I just cut the amount used in half?

You would cut them i half too. Unless you want it that bitter.
