Protein/Carb Ratio

I am currently 160 pounds at 5"6 and I am looking to gain about 10-15 pounds over the next 5-6 months. How much protein and carbs should I include in my post workout shake in order to achieve the results?

I know I will need to eat more but before I start calculating calorie consumption I would like to know how much protein and carbs will be coming from the post workout shake?

Are you going with just whey and maize or something different like Surge?

Surge has about 25 g protein, and 49-50g carbs. You could do 1-2 servings.

I was planning on using up the stuff I currently have and then possibly buying some Surge (since Ive read great reviews of it). The stuff I currently have and plan on using first is Whey Protein and then a Simple Carb powder mix.

Im really looking for how to calculate the amount of protein and carb I should be taking in post workout in order to gain the needed weight.
