I was told that you can get in the ballpark on 5 gallon recipes (and all grain after calculation) by simply dividing by 5. How true is this? How big is the ballpark?

Pretty close but you boil off volume is going to be the same regardless of how big your batch size is. Hop utilization will be a bit better because you're going to have a smaller average extract concentration but probably not enough to make a difference in most recipes.

Can you elaborate on the boil off volume comment?

If you normally lose a gallon an hour with a 5 gallon batch, you will lose a gallon an hour for a 1 gallon batch on the same system. Ingredients can be cut by 1/5, but your boil volume should be (target final volume + boiloff) and not 1/5 of a 5 gallon batch's boil volume.

So 2 gallons?
