Sorry to revive a dead topic, but I'm thinking I might brew this clone today. I made the step up to all-grain a few batches ago and prior to that I used extract kits. In these kits, you were to boil a certain amount of water (lets say 3 gallons), add all the goodies, then put it in the carboy and add water until you reach the right gravity. Does anyone know if the recipe here is for a boil of the full 5 gal or 2.5? I don't want to end up messin my up hops here

I just had some #9 when I was back east for a few months and the clone is spot on.
