So I've been talking with Matt from Oakshire brewery in Oregon. They make a fantastic IPA called Watershed IPA but its not available in DC where I live so I'm trying to clone it. He sent me his recipe and I am trying to reduce it to a 5 gallon homebrew batch size. Below is what he told me, and below that is what I have in beersmith dialed down for 5 gallons. I swapped out Amarillo's for Zythos, because Amarillo's are impossible to find and it's what they've done in the past with good results. I'd appreciate any advice!

15.1 Plato OG
2.8 plato FG
6.7%

2 row pale malt-94%
munich 4%
castle caravienne or other 20L light c malt-2%

IBUs 75
Nugget-90 min
8.25#

15 min
Amarillo 4#
Centennial 4#
Crystal 3#

Whirlpool
Zythos 5#

Dryhop
Amarillo 11#
Simcoe 4.5#

21 bbls in the kettle pre boil
19.5 post boil
add one bbl h20 in whirlpool
yeild 16 bbls after fermentation

153 deg mash
3 cubs gypsum for our water
67 degree ferment.
