That's what I've been doing. All grain brewing scales very well so you could go from a gallon batch to a 20 gallon batch and the only thing you would need different is a bigger pot and burner for the big batches. Otherwise in the ingredients it's just math, half size batch takes half the ingredients.

I'm now running into the hop fade on an an APA I made in November. It isn't bad but it is noticeable.
