Default Flyng dog brewery - Snake Dog IPA recipe

I am a big fan of snake dog ipa and wanted to make an all grain version of it for fun so i sent off an email to flying dog. here is there response, the reformulated recipe is below but i dont know how much salt or gypsum to add any ideas

Dear Glynn,

Thank you very much for writing us. It is great to hear how much you love Snake Dog and that you are attempting to homebrew it! You actually have a really close recipe. I have a few suggestions:

· Increase your caramel malt a little bit

· Increase your total grain bill or try to better your mash efficiency so that you hit closer to your target gravity (a target of 1.066 is about right)

· Collect more in the kettle and boil for 90 minutes instead of 60

· Use American Ale 1056 instead of 1272



Your hop additions look pretty good. You may want to consider mashing at a slightly higher temperature to have a higher ending gravity. Do you use gypsum or any salts in your mash or boil? If not, I recommend using a little in the mash and boil. Hopefully this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I look forward to hearing back from you on how it turns out. Thanks again for writing and for supporting Flying Dog.



Cheers,

I am drinking the original now and I have added recipe this to my brewing schedule! Considering I am cheap and don't have the hops listed in stock and my basement is 76F right now and this uses 1056 it will be a few month but this in in my brewing schedule for the fall!

Would love to hear how Ben's suggestions influenced the recipe. I'm a BIG fan of Snake Dog as well and drink it often.

the only change made to the recipe was increasing the caramel from 8 oz to 12 and boil time. As far as the gypsum i am thinking of add 2 teas to the mash and 2 to the boil. in his note he made a comment about increasing my eff to hit an og of 1.066. i cut and pasted recipe from bs and it added an act measured gravity which was real low. i haven't made this one yet
