This was my first brew and I am about to make it again on Sunday. It is my LHBS clone of Sweetwater 420. It was better than the 5 others I brewed after it. That's why it's gone and the rest are still here. This is for 5 gallons.

7.7 lbs Briess Pilsen Light LME
1lb Light Munich
1lb Vienna
4oz Cara Aroma
5aau Warrior 30 min (I don't actually know how much that is)
1oz Cascade 10 min
1oz Cascade 5 min

Ferment with S-05

My OG was 1.060 and FG was 1.017.

Here's another version from the same LHBS from a couple of years ago.

Sorry to rehash an old thread, but I am also trying to nail a SW420 recipe before football season hits. How did this recipe turn out? I brewed a Brewsmith convert of the link you listed and it turned out OKAY... Not nearly as drinkable as the original SW420. Let me know your results.
