8 lbs. of generic Liquid Malt Extract. Or any brand light liquid extract. Of course, if you do a partial boil add half at the beginning of the boil and half at the end (5-10 min).

I haven't brewed this before, and actually added it to my list of planned brews yesterday. However, since the Centennial is being used here primarily as a bittering hop, I don't see why not. If the Centennial was a late addition, I wouldn't do it, because Magnum doesn't impart any aromas. However, after 60 minutes in the kettle, neither will the Centennial. If you are concerned about the aroma due to this replacement, you could increase the flameout Cascade addition by a half ounce.

Magnum typically has about 25% more alpha acid content than Centennial, so you might want to check the IBUs to make sure it's still in a range you want, or adjust accordingly.

Just pickep up the bill for this... it doesn't look like the pound of special roast is enough to make it "black" but we shall see... my LHBS had it roasted at 300L

I meant carafa was the 300L... im boiling it as we speak. Alas I wont be calling it Darth Vader. The lb of of 300L was only enough to make it dark brown. So im thinking of calling it Lando Calrissian Ale lol

I'm brewing this up as my first non-kit beer. Been in the primary about ten days now. I'm planning on racking it to a secondary this weekend, letting it sit for a week, and then bottle. Ahhh, I'm super excited.
