You can see that the mash PH is still high based on my water... I have water with little mineral content so I would add Calcium Chloride, more Gypsum and Epsom salt to achieve a healthy mash... 50ppm+ of Calcium, 10ppm+ Magnesium and a pH below 5.5.
(I usually don't need lactic acid but I some use it - about .5mL in my sparge water at least.)

Notes

Mash at 149 for 60 minutes. After 60 min. Raise temp to 168 for mash out. Sparge with 2.8 gallons of 170 degree water. Top up with water (if neeeded) to reach 6 gallons of 1.049 wort.
Boil for 60 minutes adding hops as noted.

NOTE: recipe calls for Cascade with AA of 8.2 - you may need to adjust your amounts to reach the desired AAU!
4.1 AAU @ 60 min
6.2 AAU @ 45 min
simply .5 oz of hops at 0 min.... (up it to .75 if you are using hops with less than 8.2 AA)
Just 1 oz of dry hop no matter the AA.

Cool wort to 65ish and pitch yeast and ferment at 67 for 4 days. On day 4 add dry hops and let rest for another 3 days.
Once final gravity is reached (approximately 7 days total) bottle or keg and carbonated.
