Can I brew multiple batch sizes?

It is possible to brew multiple batch sizes, for example 5 and 10 gallons, with the following sizes. Note that you may need to accept some compromises for the added flexibility, such as adding additional makeup water to your boil kettle, thinner mashes, higher boil-off rates, etc. For doing small mashes in a large pot, it is advised to use a thinner mash. This will help maintain temperatures and also allow the thermometer to read the mash. We do offer a thermometer hole plug so you can locate the thermometer at a lower position for smaller batches and the higher position for bigger batch size.

Here are some suggested options.

5 / 10: 5 gal -> 20 / 10 / 15, 10 gal -> 10 / 15 / 20

10 / 20: 10 gal -> 30 / 15 / 20, 20 gal -> 15 / 20 / 30

20 / 30: 20 gal -> 55 / 20 / 30, 30 gal -> 20 / 30 / 55
