Default Help me convert this recipe for Firestone Walker Double Jack IIPA

I'm looking to clone this beer as my first attempt at an IIPA. This is the profile of the beer from the website.

malts
Premium Two-Row (Metcalf & Kendall varieties), Munich, Simpson's Light Crystal
hops
4+lbs/BBL: Bittering—Warrior, Columbus; Late Kettle—Cascade, Centennial; Dry Hops—Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe


I could use some help with the malts on this recipe… I'm guessing that the Two-Row can be subbed with Light DME, but I"m not sure what to do for the Munich and the Light Crystal.

Here is my attempt at the recipe

wasn't a bad beer but nothing close. I've since gone AG and actually brewed my first attempt at the clone yesterday.

Take a look at this article.. Scott basically takes Tasty and Jamil's podcast, summarizes and puts all the pieces together. Amazing work by everyone on this.

http://www.bertusbrewery.com/2012/11...ne-walker.html

This is the recipe that I made yesterday (although had to sub 007 for 002 and a minor bittering hop change). Are you looking to do extract? Partial Mash?

if you do a mini mash, (i don't think steeping the munich will have the desired effect) you can probably get close.. I'd definitely like to see how it turns out for you.
