More balanced chloride to sulfate ratio closer to the Northeast/Vermont IPA profile. Boston MWRA water used as my base for the mash water. Using distilled/RO for sparge water. Estimated mash pH of 5.2.

Based on above my salt additions will be to the mash water only as follows: 1.4 teaspoons gypsum (5.5 grams), 0.9 teaspoons Epsom salt (4.2 grams), 2.1 teaspoons calcium chloride (9.2 grams), and 0.4 teaspoons baking soda (2 grams).

Notes
This recipe most closely resembles Congress Street IPA. I plan to test different ABVs by adjusting the malt weights, but keeping the general grist intact. Also this malt bill would be the base for many different hop combos. For yeast I'm using the Conan strain, but experimenting with different English strains is another possibility. WLP007 Dry English Ale yeast is speculated to be the true yeast used (BYO, 9/15 issue).

Many thanks to Trillium for being so open regarding ingredients on their website and JC for offering tips in the Beer Advocate forum.

Was there anything you would change on this? I'm shooting to make the Stillings Street clone and made a few variations to the grist and hop schedule. Going with a little more bitter in the 60 min to hit ~45 IBUs and going with about 1 oz of Nelson per gallon in dryhop, while columbus will be about .25oz / gal in whirlpool and dryhop.
