That must be out of the 1st edition. The 2nd edition has a slightly different recipe but comparing it to the info in the Real Ale Almanac - the first recipe looks closer.

Just remember to recalculate all the hopping to your own effeciency. Wheeler assumes quite a low hop efficency, and many people that brew his recipes blindly complain that they are too bitter.
