comment Is there anything I need to keep in mind if I double a recipe?
Yes, sir. When you have a higher gravity in the wort, the hop alpha acids won't isomerize as well. So with 250% of the initial water volume in the boil, you'll have a lower initial sugar concentration; allowing for greater isomerization. That's the chemistry as I remember it.
