I just brewed an all Munich IPA (I have a big bag to use up) Beersmith claimed my mash pH would be 5.2 with my salts and acid additions but it ended at 5.5 so I dumped in some more phosphoric acid it eventually settled at 5.2.Interesting that you say that about pH, I had expected as such so increased alkalinity to give a predicted mash pH of 5.4 (from two different calculators) but I measured it at 5.7 for some reason, which is a big difference.
I also have had the same attenuation issues before so I mashed for 90 minutes. I'll let you know where it's at in a week or so.
