You can just boil as usual and topoff after, but you'll get altered hop utilization. Since this recipe is light on the hop anyway, however, you'll probably be fine doing so. If you're concerned about it, you could always up one of the later additions or move them a bit earlier in the boil though.

here ya go....try this....for a 3 gallon boil...then top off. You need to add more hops and adjust boil times as indicated below in updated recipe....because, as smagee said you will get less hop utilization with a smaller boil volume.

Do yourself a favor and download the free trial of BEERSMITH.....give it a try...it is free for 21 days.....then you can buy it for around $23.00 when you decide you like it....and I promise you will.

Here is the modified recipe below....REMEMBER...you will need to adjust hop times for hops with different AA values that are assumed (i.e. 9.5% AA for Centenial assumed...if the specific lot of hops you buy is different in AA you will need to adjust.....very simple in BEERSMITH)


Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Boil Size: 3.00 gal
Estimated OG: 1.041 SG
Estimated FG: 1.010 SG
Estimated Color: 3.2 SRM
Estimated IBU: 19.4 IBU
Boil Time: 55 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
5.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 83.3 %
1.00 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 16.7 %
0.375 oz Centennial [9.50%] (55 min) Hops 8.6 IBU
0.375 oz Centennial [9.50%] (30 min) Hops 6.8 IBU
0.375 oz Cascade [7.80%] (10 min) Hops 2.6 IBU
0.375 oz Cascade [7.80%] (5 min) Hops 1.4 IBU
1 Pkgs Nottingham (Danstar #-) Yeast-Ale

Well I just had my first taste of the extract version: I hope it gets a lot better. Over 3 weeks in primary and kegged for 1 1/2 weeks.

Can't tell if it has a metallic taste or carb bite or what. Just has a bad aftertaste and not much of a beer taste. I'm sure the recipe is good I just screwed it up somehow.

Just made this with US-05 and it came out awesome!.......I came in a little low on the og at 1.038 but it is still a very clear , easy drinking beer, and the vienna malt comes through nicely...It was a little yeasty at first , after 2 weeks cold and carbed, all the yeast dropped out and left me with a very clean beer.Thanks Biermuncher...well done...I plan on making another batch next week , but will shoot for an OG of 1.044 this time for a little more fullness.

Anybody who successfully dryhopped this before care to share type of hops used, amount, when to add, and if its okay to just add straight to primary (I'd rather be lazy and not secondary). I did try searching thread for dryhop and got one person who said they did it, but didn't mention how it turned out. I'm 4 days into primary at this point. Thanks!
