So i'm taking the plunge next weekend and will do my first AG beer, not sure what type but non the less i'm going to give it a shot! Just wanted some advice before i get started, i understand how the mash and sparge works, but i'm still a little fuzzy on the volume of water i need to use from mashing to sparging to end up with a full 5Gal batch, also will i need to be able to boil the full batch when doing AG or can i top off with some water in the carboy? if there is any other tips you all can suggest i'm all ears!
