Dr. Jones Indiana Pale Ale (IPA) - Comments/Criticisms
 
I have written 2-3 IPA recipes now, requested help on here a couple times, and i read some articles on American IPAs. I think i have come to a decent recipe. Please provide comments and criticisms.

Looks pretty good as far as I can tell. Why the 90 minute boil though? It's a PM recipe so 60 minutes should work fine for the bittering. Also, I've never seen food grade gypsum outside of a LHBS. Someone had a thread about seeing some at a garden supply shoppe, but there were other things like fertilizers added to it.

I tend to over sparge and need the extra time to boil the water down.

I adjust as i go usually. I know the line on my pot where i need to start the 60 min timer.

This actually looks very good. Let us know how it comes out.

How much water are you using to dissolve the LME?
