I finally watched John's youtube as well and while I have brewed the HT clone 3 times and it always came out great, I never paid attention to my mash pH. My mash pH calculates to 5.77 on brewersfriend, but adding 2 tsp of gypsum to the mash and using 2% acidulated malt should drop my mash pH to 5.4 as well as giving me the ideal mineral levels (outside of the high sodium levels my water supply has) for a light colored and hoppy beer. I think I'll go with hop shots and only dry hop for 4-5 days next time I do the Heady clone and see how much better I can get it.
