eff5 Ordinary Bitter

This is the beer I brew when I'm starting a new "cycle" or when I hit refresh on my brewing. After living in hotels for the last two years, it was something I truly missed about home.
I started brewing bitter with Jamil's Recipe from brewing classic styles (excellent, of course). And then moved on to variations of Bob's Pride of Raubsville. This was one of the simpler ones, ditching new trendy malts for old reliables biscuit and 120.
This is a really simple beer, with which, I've made minor tweaks. I don't always make it the same way twice, but this is the most common version of it.
This looks like a beer i'd very much like to brew. However I'm looking at your recipe, and it's saying that these are the ingredients for an 11 gallon batch. I brew 5.5 gallon batches, so is this recipe calling for only 4.5 pounds of base malt for a 5.5 gallon batch?
Yep, Not a misprint. This is not a strong beer.
Keep in mind your typical efficiency, you might want to scale up the base malt a bit if you're convinced you won't hit the 79% eff specified. If you happen to overshoot (like I routinely do on low gravity beers) and make a stronger wort, it's no big deal! The beer will just need proportionally more hop.
The pre boil OG (without sugar) I aim for is 1.026. Late addition of sugar adds four gravity points and a good boil gets the wort to 1035.
