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.

How much water are you using to dissolve the LME?
