I am doing my first 10 gallon batch this weekend. Should I expect anything different from a traditional 5 gallon batch?

Here's what I am brewing:


Denny Conn's
Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter ::: 1.079/1.017 (6 Gal)

Grain Bill (70% Efficiency assumed)

13 lb.- 2-Row Pale Malt
2.5 lb. - Munich Malt (15 L)
1.5 lb. - Brown Malt
1 lb. - Crystal Malt (120L)
1/2 lb. - Crystal Malt (40L)
1.25 lb. - Chocolate Malt (edited - Thanks Denny)
Extras :
Kentucky Bourbon (Jim Beam, Knob Creek, etc.)
Real, Whole Vanilla Beans (Extract just won't do)
Oak Chips or Cubes

Hop Schedule (37 IBU)

1 oz - Magnum Hops (60 min)
1/2 oz - E.K. Goldings (10 min)
Yeast

White Labs California Ale Yeast (WLP001) - 1800 ml starter

Mash/Sparge/Boil

Mash at 153 for 60 min.
Sparge as usual
Cool and ferment at about 68 Add Vanilla Beans after primary - rack 7 to 14 days
Add Bourbon at bottling (1 to 1.75 cups - don't overdo this!)
Infuse Bourbon beforehand with Oak Chips/Cubes if you want.


Is it as simple as doubling the recipe? And has anyone tried this recipe?

You should expect....

MORE BEER!!!

But other than that it just takes a little longer (getting up to boil temps, transfers, etc) in my experience. But it's much less time than a second brew day.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Just as Piratwolf says! I'd just add that depending on your system be prepared to be lugging twice the weight! Hop utilization doesn't change until 20gal so you're good there. Enjoy your brewday and enjoy twice the beer!!!

Yes, Just double the recipe. That recipe assumes 70% efficency, You'll just have to adjust grain bill and hops to your yours once you figure it out.

Will take a little longer to get to boil and to cool down. Otherwise everything is about the same. You just have more beer at the end!

Denny's porter has been in the bottle 3.5 weeks and I had a taste with a friend this weekend. Very rich beer. Mine ended @ 1.019 from 1.083 with a mash temp of 151. Shoot for 153-155.

What are you mashing this monster in? I've done 26lbs in a 10 gallon tun and it was most painful.

I stuck that recipe in BeerSmith 2 and scaled it from 6 to 10 gallons. It matches color and IBU's. Simply doubling everything wont work unless you really meant you were doing a 12 gallon batch, not 10. If you would like me to post up the adjusted recipe, let me know!

I'm going to brew it too. Not this weekend, but soon.

Cheers!

I would imagine there is some difference in hop flavor/aroma in a larger batch if cooling takes longer, less of an issue in a porter than a pale or IPA of course.
