So to make the original recipe a ten gallon batch do I just double everything? Sorry for the noob question I searched the thread and don't know personally!

The original recipe is for 5.5 gallons, so you can double it to make 11. If you double it and only make 10, you'll come in high on gravity and the IBUs will be off.

Yeah I meant 11, I always do 5.5 to account for equipment and trub losses. Ten gallons final.

Does one have to use fawcett brand stuff or will any brand of the right grain do?

Any brand will do.

The starter of WY1450 is spinning away on the stir plate right now and I bought a sack of golden promise todayso not only will I have enough for this beer, but for lots of sweet golden promise beers in the next couple months!
What were you going to do to the spices for an imperial version? I was thinking of making this with an OG of 1.075 or so, and using WY1968, but I don't know if the alcohol and malt increase will dwarf the spices.

Leave the spicing the same if you want a subtle, well-balanced spice. If you want a more over-the-top spiciness, you can up the amounts, but I'm leaving it the same for my imperial samhain ale.

Picked up the ingredients for this today. One issue though... I got a lb of MO separate, but realized they crushed them when I asked for uncrushed. Should I toast them uncrushed or just roll with the MO as is. Thoughts?

I toasted mine crushed(had no mill at the time). It worked great. If anything it probably enhances the flavor since the flour is toasted too and not just the husk.

I'd agree, I did toast my MO unmilled, but it should be fine crushed. Throw it in a brown paper bag and roll it up so no bugs can get in and keep the flavors in, it'll still breath. I can't wait to try this beer in 5 weeks.

Sounds good to me. Really wish I had bought something other than US-05. They didn't have the Denny's Favorite
