If I were to take the same recipe from a partial boil to a full boil do I need to change anything?

Looking to move forward to a full boil now that the weather is changing.

Reduce the bittering hops (60 minute addition) by about 15% to accommodate increased hop utilization.

Also, that may be the most syllables I've ever used in one single sentence.

And we're all very proud of you llama :D

+1 on the reducing the bittering hops a bit. I ended up with some abnormally bitter hefeweizen when I first switched.

Well...I guess that that means that I'm gonna end up with an abnormally bitter Sweet Stout then too :( Not quite a full boil probably around 4 gallons but I added the full amount of hops. 1oz. Kent Goldings (I think). Guess I'll find out in a couple of weeks.

If you find the bittering effect from the hops too strong, let it bottle condition for a few months. It tends to mellow things out quite a bit.
