Did you end up with the correct end volume by adding that gallon? I know when I was dialing in my system for 11g batches once I got a 12.5finish volume (don't ask). Anyway, the beer was so watered down it really missed the mark for what I was looking for. i.e. better to have your correct end volume than the correct O.G. IMO.

No, I was doing a 5 gallon batch, and it was much more like 4-4.5 in the fermenter.

I did the dilution calculation in Beersmith, and it said adding a gallon of water would get me to 1.068.

FWIW...

I made this with WLP090 and mashed at 154*F to compensate for the higher attenuation. This worked well for me -- OG/FG of 1.068/1.019.

Ok, so after about 10 days it's down to 1.015!! Perfect, and that was mashing at 150. Glad I listened to everyone.

Oh, and the hydro sample was amazing.. I forgot how good stout samples taste, even green.

OK, this recipe is absolutely nuts. The best stout I have ever tasted. I even subbed in C60 instead of C80.

Brewed this last weekend. So far so good, OG was 1068, and made some minor changes to the amounts, and brew shop didn't have the recommended yeast, so I used White Labs 013 London ale yeast. My first stout, so I'm excited to see how it turns out. I plan on letting it set in the primary for a few weeks, then bottle it. Will let everyone know how it turns out.
