Recipe Scaling - Specialty Malts
I'm looking to scale up another recipe (Smoked Porter) from a 1hl to 7hl brew length. I've heard that the dark malts don't necessarily scale linearly. Any suggestions if my 1hl grist has pale malt majority, 5% hand smoked pale malt, 5% crystal, 2.5% black patent, and 2.5% Chocolate.
Should I stick with these percentages for the first go, or reduce?
