I have been doing partial boils to brew my beer, I now have a large enough brew pot to do a full boil. Will I need to reduce the amount of hops I use to achieve the same results?

Yup. If I recall correctly, I needed to nudge my hops down by about ten percent when I went from a 4gallon boil to a 7gallon.

I think there is a lot of misinformation on this subject. may shed some light in this apparent misinformation.

There are only 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't.
