Don't use .5 pounds of black patent! That is a lot! The small amount of BP is for color only.
I just brewed a three gallon batch. The immersion chiller is doing its thing as I write this. I used .3 ounces of BP! I needed to use my small gram scale to weigh it accurately.
I used 12 oz., up from 10, of the 80 degree crystal malt, to hopefully gain a bit more maltyness.
Edit: Oh and I had to use my gram scale for the hops as well. It doesn't seem like much hops at all but it works out just fine in a three gallon batch.
