    I found a 5 gal BIAB clone I wist to try, but I wish to make a 10 gal brew in a 3 Vessel system. I have imported the recipe into my recipes.

    Is there a way to convert the 5 gal BIAB recipe to a 10 gal 3V recipe

    If you have the recipe set up in the recipe editor here, there is a recipe scale function. Put the recipe in edit mode, then click on recipe tools.

    Simple math my friend ... for your ingredients, divide by 5 then multiply by 10 ….keep your time units the same but compensate for your boil off amount.....your BIAB process doesn't matter...you may find your first batch will be a learner and your next batch better.

    I do it all the time, it's pretty easy with the website tools.

    Just multiply everything by two except the water. For the water, subtract the boil-off, double what's left, then add back the boil-off.
