Looks pretty good. Do you add flameout hops literally when the heat is turned off or wait til temp lowers a bit? I had really nice results quickly cooling to 180F then adding hops, hold/whirlpool for 15 min and then cool quickly to pitching temps.

I just cut the flame toss them in and periodically stir during that 15 mins. The hops create a very green vegetable soup like appearance throughout the whirlpool. This tells me that the lack of a heat source keeps them from fully breaking down which is why, im guessing, you get great flavor and aroma from this method.

I will also dry hop this beer with at least a half ounce of citra for a week possibly cascade and columbus as well.
