I've been all grain brewing 5 gallon batches for a while now. I really want to try to make 10 gallon brews with my current setup by splitting the high gravity wort info two fermenters and topping off. Thinking of trying it with a nice pale ale. Have you continued this practice? Thanks!

I have done this from time to time with no problems. My earlier post about not being quite as good was not due to the top off water, but due to the saison yeast flavor. (I'm convinced that wyeast saison yeasts have changed tremendously, but that's another topic)

How much are you looking to top off with? what is your current setup?
