I moved houses and haven't fully set up my Spike system, but I'm itching to brew so I am going to try my hand at stovetop brewing in the meantime. I've never done partial mashing, pretty much went straight to all-grain when I started brewing. I really don't feel like buying anymore equipment since this is just temporary, and all I have on hand is a 5 gal brew kettle. Given the kettle's volume, I cannot do a full wort boil of ~6.5 gal, so I wanted to get some opinions about boiling with half the wort vol and topping off when cooled. I've done a couple extract batches back in the day like this, but the hopping rates were low, and darker in color (I am reading these are two concerns with more concentrated boil volumes). With more delicate styles, has anyone had good results with partial mashing and reduced boil volumes?
