I'm a newbie with around 5 brews under my belt now. For my next brew, I want to try Edwarts Haus Pale Ale AG, 10 gallon batch (using Notty yeast).

1. Is it as simple as just doubling the grain bill for this recipe?

2. I'm assuming the temperatures will all remain the same, but will the mash time stay the same also?

What else should I be aware of in converting this recipe to a 10 gallon batch?

I always research other threads for answers before posting a question, however, I've gotten a very wide array of advice regarding this. Half of everybody says just double everything, but others say that the water amounts and hop amounts will change. I just don't want to mess up by not getting the proper grain bill and or water, so that's why I'm posting.

I don't know if this is poor forum etiquette or not, but will someone please run this recipe through Beersmith for a 10 gallon batch and post the results?
Thanks! MF

Here's the recipe:
Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Nottingham
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5

Grain Bill

0.5 lb. Crystal 10L Malt

Single Infusion mash for 60 minutes at 152 degrees.
I batch sparge in a 10 gallon water cooler with a stainless braid manifold.
Dough-in with 3.5 gallons of water. After 60 minutes, add 5 quarts of 175 degree water and begin vorlauf. Have another 3.25 gallons of 175 degree water ready for the next batch sparge. You should then get 6.5 gallons to your kettle for the boil.

Because I'm bored I went ahead and entered this. Looks about the same. I would disregard the ounce of grain here and there though to make it easier.

Yep, you pretty much double everything for a double size batch. Good luck!
Check out the priming sugar calculator, yeast starter calculator, and the beer calorie calculator.
