Can this recipe be cut in half for a 5gal batch size - or - would some modifications be needed?

Thanks.

68 for a Scottish ale fermentation seems really high! Is that a typo?

Good catch. I just checked my notes and I fermented it in the low 60s. I would have fermented cooler, but I made it in July and that was as cool as I could get it. The 68 degrees was for the other recipe I posted that day, my Special Bitter.

Just wanted to say thanks for the recipe... I made this for my first ever batch on Halloween! It has turned out really nice, and I am getting pretty good complements from it...

Thanks for the comments. We are just finishing of the last of that batch. It gets better and better over time. So put a few bottles aside for 2-3 months.

Boar Beer is my dad. I just compared the recipe I posted to the one I have in Beer Smith and I noticed that I missed an ingredient. I also had one pound of Vienna malt. According to Beer Smith I had 87% efficiency, which is fairly typical for my system. Thank you for pointing this out to me and I apologize to anyone who has already brewed this recipe. I will try to be more careful in the future.
