you should just make the jump to AG... its easy... just takes a bit more time than an extract brew. Realistically you just need a cooler with a braid on it and you are set....

Look for Denny's Cheap and Easy Batch Sparge method on google and you will see how easy it really is.

Would love to do all grain, but the extra time investment isn't really worth it to me.. Maybe in time I will change my tune.

IIRC CTZ is one of the most mass-produced hop varieties thanks to the high alpha acids that lead them to be used by the macros. It's nice for a bittering hop (like this recipe), and could probably do a decent job for aroma.

I am going to attempt this shortly. I plugged the recipe into Beersmith with a 5.5 gallon batch size, and it's giving me a 6.4 ABV instead of 7.5 of the real thing. I left all the efficiencies and what not at the defaults (70%), I'm a noob and I'm not sure I am doing everything correctly, according to Beersmith, estimate OG is at 1.059 and FG at 1.010. It looks like it'd need 1.066 OG or so to hit the mark.

If you take the original recipe and calculated at 5 gallons and 75 percent efficiency, you will get very close to your target.
I get 70 percent efficiency and brew 5.5 gallon batches, so I adjusted accordingly.
