    Quick answer would be to multiply everything in the recipe by .91. The recipe builder has a scale function that would give you a more accurate result, but if I was doing it I would just brew it as is, and leave a bit more beer in the kettle with the trub.

    Upper right corner of recipe is Recipe tools...copy...edit copied version...Recipe tools again in editor/calculator...scale to whatever size you need. Your system and process will tell you exactly what sort of water volumes you need.

    I've honestly never tried that. I really should.

    It works well - even keeps the water amounts correct relative to your boil-off.
