OK, I'd rather not learn the hard way. If I have a recipe for a 10 gallon batch, is converting it to a 5 gal batch as simple as cutting everything in half? Something tells me it can't be that simple. Comments?

In quantities so small as 10 gallon to 5 gallon it really is that simple. There might be issues with converting a recipe from 10000 gallon to 5 gallon. I know that in cooking when converting from say family sized recipes to institutional sized that strange things happen and other tweaks are usually needed.
