Default Big Foot Barley WIne

Ok I made this recipe off of the threads
Here ya go:
Bigfoot Barley Wine
13 oz. US 60°L Crystal Malt
8¾ lbs. Extra Light DME
4 lbs. Pale LME
2½ oz. Nugget @ 12% AA (30 HBU) (bittering hop)
1 oz. Cascade (flavor hop)
1 tsp. Irish Moss
1 oz. Cascade (aroma hop)
1 pkg. Wyeast 1056 American Ale or
1 pkg. Wyeast 1028 London Ale
¼ oz. Cascade (dry hop)
¼ oz. Cascade (dry hop)
1¼ cup Wheat DME (priming)

OG: 1.102 – 1.105
FG: 1.023 – 1.026
SRM: 16
IBU: 100
ABV: 10.0%
I used 8 and 1/3 instead of 8 and 3/4..I also brought up to closer to 5 and 1/2 gallons of water. The OG was 1.085..I guess my question is does this sound right? Can it vary that much? also I see 1/4 and 1/4 dry hopping but it doesn't explain why..do they mean 1/2 or 1/4 and it was typed twice? Any one make this recipe or sometyhing similiar? I have seen a few big foot clones..

Side note I made a monster starter and this thing was going crazy in about 6 hours..very pretty site. I also used some yeast nutrient. I'm hoping I do not need to repitch in secondary and this can finish it off. I used american ale yeast and I think it should do fine at 8 to 9% ABV which is what Im looking at.

Thanks, Jay
