So after my burner wouldn't light I ended up doing this on the stove, started with 4gal water, boiled down to 2.5ish, o.g. was like 1.096 before topping off and 1.064 after... Made some other changes ill share with review down the road...

I recommend ordering online if the LHBS doesn't have it. It is an absolutely essential ingredient for this recipe, accept no substitutes!
Bottled this batch yesterday. Holy crap it tastes bad. Really bad. I'll leave it and let it do its thing for a couple of months and see how it goes but I can see myself just throwing it all away.

Brewed what will hopefully be the no nonsense stout with the real D-180 and it looks and smells pretty damn good. Got it chugging away. I used Nottingham instead of S-05 since that's what I had on hand. Hopefully it will work!

This recipe is bomb diggity. Great head retention. This pour is 30 minutes old and still holding a nice, tight foamy head.
