This is what Tony Hansen from Shorts wrote

Can't wait to brew this! But it will be a while. Too damn cold for me here in Michigan to brew outside. If anybody tries this, post your thoughts!
This thread has been dead for some time now. However, I'd like to resurrect it for a moment because this is one of my favorite beers, and now that I live a great distance from MI I'd like to try my hand at making it.
My question regarding the above-quoted post is "What is the batch size for this recipe?"
The next person that posted said that this would need something like a 15 lb. malt bill to come close to the gravity. Based on this and some of the other clones out there I'm left to think the quoted recipe has something like a 2 or 2.5 gallon batch size. Following the obvious math of this leads to a 18.50 lb. malt bill and a 11.00 oz. hop sched. I think this makes sense given the hop schedule is roughly between tamoore's initial clone and third batch recommendations and given tamoore's suggestions to up the flavoring could come close to the 18.50 lb. malt bill.
Really the only way to know is to brew up a batch, which I guess I'll get cracking on... but if anyone has any additional ideas, I'd greatly appreciate them!
