Looks pretty good to me. I would probably just bitter with the citra @40min and increase the hop amount at the end of the boil. I like it nice and aromatic but thats just my preference.

15 mins is the preset for beersmith but 5 sounds good to me if you have proved it works better :)

Just to spanner the works up - I put mine in at 10 minutes (whirlfloc or carrageegan). When the weight is calculated correctly (actually my fault, not yours as I used the same amount I use for 20-25 L not 30) it works OK (much better than you saw). 15 mins probably won't make a hell of a lot of difference to adding at 10 and I've seen instructions for 5 before. I think it just needs some action and heat from the boil to dissolve and disperse properly (or something - forgot) exactly).

Recipe looks good enough not to worry to much about changing anything. Brew with it and tweak stuff next time but there's no dog's balls faults. I'd lower the mash temp to 64 with 300g crystal and 1050:33.5. Or up the bittering to 36-40. Or drop the crystal to 200.

3g of gypsum to the mash wouldn't hurt.

haha it was one thing i should have taken note of, i knew my notebook would become useless if i was drinking beer :)

fair point with the mash temp, i was thinking i want something with a bit of chewiness but the crystal will help supply that yeah?

wanna keep the bitterness to around 30-35 purely my palate thou

might add some lavender? :p haha

Keep the crystal where it is, keep the bitterness where it is and drop the mash temp to 64.

Add a dab of lavender to your bath. Leave town with an orange and pretend you're laughing at it.

gypsum is Calcium sulphate (CaSO4) so if you're already adding salts just go with what you are doing.
