Ran it through promash.
OG - 1.066
IBU - 33.6
SRM - 7.5

FG will depend on yeast and conditions, but I would guess somewhere between 1.010 and 1.014.

NOw that I look at the recipe closer, that honey could drop the gravity because of the high fermentability, so it might actually be lower. Never used honey before. I guess i should try a mead sometime. Someone with more experience please chime in.
