http://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/r ... ouble-bock This recipe was in a BYO magazine. I'm scaling it down to make a one gallon batch. I guess I have a few specific questions. I usually do partial mashes with a 2 gallon cooler. With this batch being so small it will be All Grain. Here are my questions: 1. I set the efficiency at 65%. If I do better will it affect the flavor that much if I add water to keep the ABV around the 8.5% 2. With scaling down it looks like I'm hardly putting any hops in but the recipe editor is showing my IBU's to be 25. Anyone have experience with small batches and does this seam correct. 3. If my efficiency is better than 65% and I have to add water do I need to worry about my hops since I am already at the high end of the IBU scale for this style. 4. This will be my first infusion mash to raise the temperature with boiling water. If there are any tricks to help with this I would appreciate it. I plan to have some cool water also if I need to make adjustments.
