I'm looking to save myself from brewing outside during the winter (I'm lazy and no garage). I was thinking of making a light ale, around 2.5%. I figure I don't need to boil all the water at once so then I can use my stove. I could mash with half the water and get a stronger wort, then dilute with water in the fermenter. The end result should be around O.G. 1.029 but the half size says around ~1.06X. Does anyone else see a flaw in my logic/reasoning? You might be thinking, just do an extract boil, well I have all these grains so it would essentially cost me just the yeast and hops. Which I might already have the hops, so just the yeast.
