something is wrong with this recipe. Even with 100% efficiency, you will not get to 1.081 OG

The original poster of this recipe is no longer a part of the forum. Google search results http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Dragon%27s+Milk+Clone, you might find a better clone recipe.

I haven't used this recipe, but New Holland's Dragon's Milk is probably my favorite commercial beer. I don't know why anyone would want 5g's either. I wouldn't make less than 10!

+1... If my kettle was big enough I would make it a 20 gal batch.

Hate to bump an old thread, but can this be haxed to extract? Are all the grains but the 2 row steepers, or will they need mashing also? My experience/gear so far is limited to extract stouts and meads, and this looked like a good one to try.
