If I want to make this recipe for 5 gallons, should I just cut everything in half?

If I were brewing it, that is not the way I would do it. I would put the recipe in a calculator and have the calculator scale it down for you. It might work out to half anyways though.

Yep, to make this recipe into 5.5 gal, just cut everything in half. To make it into a 5.5 gal extract recipe, use 8 lbs. LME instead of 2-row. The rest of the grains and hops remain the same, just cut the amount in half.

PS. Actually, I'm going to edit the OP right now and add a 5.5 gal AG version plus a 5.5 gal Extract version.

So how did this beer turn out? Has any one else made it? Is it worth making a batch? I have never had a black Ipa till last week. It was amazing. I can not remember who made it but it sure was good. And do you have any pics of a pint of this. I would love to see the color.

Bubbling away in the Carboy now, I upped the hops a bit, just cause I had extra.
