Notes

90 gallons strike water - 360 quarts / 235 lbs of grain = 1.53 qts/lb
167 degree water

Mash Temp 156 (to provide gravity points due to simple sugars completely fermented).

12 pounds of honey is 1 gallon, so the honey addition will add 12.5 gallons.

D-180 and honey added at flameout will add 14 gallons.

Start with 120, 8 boil off? 112+14 = 126 post maybe?

Adding sugar at end of boil - hop utilization should be around 24 IBU
