Yeah- it's already a 5 gallon recipe. If you look, the preboil OG is different than the OG for the brew. That's because the guy who wrote this recipe boils off 1.5 gallons or so during the boil.
The recipe looks like it IS a 5 gallon recipe. If you're using a 5 gallon kettle, either you want a 3 gallon recipe, or you are wanting a partial mash recipe.
Are you currently an all-grain brewer, or does this need to be converted to a partial mash/extract recipe?
