Default Moving to 10 gallon batches.

Perhaps the answer is obvious, but I've been fooled before. I am considering moving from 5 gallon batches to 10 gallon batches (mini-mash/extract). Can I just double all the ingredients or does that not work like I think it should?

Baically., that works. Many of teh software programs (ProMash, BeerSmith) will scale recipes for you.

Definitley get your hands on a program that scales. The other thing I noticed is that my strike water temp needs to be 5-7 degrees higher to hit my desired mash-in temp.
