6.7 SRM isn't going to give a copper color, it will be very light. I haven't had a Lagunitas Censored but I would suggest upping the crystal 40L, or better yet, adding another crystal in the the grain bill, crystal 80L. Copperish color should come in around 17-20 SRM (off the top of my head).

Take the 40L up to .5 LB and add .5 LB pound of of 120L?
This takes it up to 12.3.
