Since this recipe is an 11 gallon one, to make it a 5 gallon one can i just cut the grain sizes in half?

Yeah, pretty much. Reduce all ingredient amounts by half and you're good to go.

Yes, but to be exact 5.5 gallon would be 1/2 a batch, this will also allow for 1/2 gallon trub loss and leave you with 5 gallons of beer.

Cheers

I've never used hopville before. But if you entered the same recipe into brewersfriend.com there is a built in option to size it however you want. But yea, if you cut it in half and expect 5.5 in the fermenter you should be fine.

400 # Monkey is pretty good stuff. If you like flavor and aroma you could just cut the 90, 60, and 45 minute hops in half and leave the short addition and dry hop at the 11 gallon level. If it ends up too hoppy (yeah right!) just age it longer as these are the fist to fade anyway...
