Can anybody tell me what the benefits are to doing a full boil rather than just a partial boil. I'm a new brewer and have only done partial boils where I boil 2 gallons and then add water after the boil to reach the 5 gallon mark. Theoretically, this seems like it shouldn't matter to the flavor of the beer but it seems like most serious brewers use the full boil technique. Just curious as to why this is? Thanks.
