Finally got around to ordering the ingredients for this beer. I'm quite excited to brew it. Updates to come...

Brew day went well. Adjusted final recipe was meant to be 1.065 and I hit 1.067. Northern Brewer sent me an open package of Carafa III so rather than a full pound, I only had .75 lbs make the mash. I upped the victory from a half pound to .75 lbs to compensate. I also split the oz of Styrian Goldings and added .5 oz at 12 mins and the other .5 oz at 0 mins. 5 G of gypsum were added for "Burtonization." The wort is very dark brown but I wish the other .25 lb of Carafa would have been there to push it to black.

Bottled this today 9/20/12. Those 3 Ozs of dry hops put quite the nose on this beer. My whole house smells of hops. It's intriguing that I've used Rhee Ozs of dry hops in many IPAs in the past but I don't recall ever having such a distinctive and powerful hop aroma. I'm pretty stoked.

Hey this recipe looks pretty awesome, and I just happen to have a # each of Stryrian, Cascade and Columbus burning a hole in my freezer. Also, planning on using 1056 since I have some washed in the fridge. Will I be losing much going with American Ale 1? Pretty excited!!

You won't lose much in not using a Kolsch strain. This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I don't think that you will be disappointed!
The Kolsch yeast added a nice clean touch and did accentuate the hops but so will 001.
