Yes. Homebrewalley 4. Pretty much what I expected. Some esters and to watch my ferment temperature and pitch rates. Described it as very drinkable.

I also entered an ESB and got an average of 34! Said it was slightly out of style. It was a kit brew though and if I would not brew it again.

I am an idiot, who did not scale down the recipe posted on the first page. I made 5 gallons using 10.5 lbs 2 row, 1.5 white wheat, 0.75 crystal 80, 0.5 carapils, and 1 lbs chocolate

brewed this last night and got an OG: 1.078

If this recipe really comes out like the real thing, you should still have a tasty beer. Black Butte has quite a bit of hop character to it, so even though yours your be a little maltier, it'll still be good.

Funny... Black Butte was always my standard beer. Pretty much all I drank. Then when I started brewing, I started buying all different beers to try different styles and whatnot. Hadn't had Black Butte in most of a year until I bought a sixer just the other day. I almost forgot how good it was. I'll definitely be giving a shot at this sometime soon.

Just got the goods in today for a brew-tiful weekend! Got the grains for a 12 gallon batch... any recommendations where I should be for the hops?

do you have beersmith or one of those programs? if not, try using beercalculus or one of the online calculators to move everything into 12 gallons. without putting the numbers into one of those programs, I don't know what exactly your amounts would be.
