Looks like a sound recipe. I would have used the Cascades as the finishing hop because they have excellent flavor aroma. For an IPA you should really think about dry hopping! 2-3 ounces will give your IPA an amazing aroma!
Next up: American Pale Ale
Primary 1&2: American Brown Ale
Primary 3&4: Hopped up Belgian Tripel
Bottle Conditioning/drinking: Summer Kolsch, White Zombie (Amarillo IPA), English Pale Ale (ESB)
Had a pretty epic spill over. Had to switch burners to the other side of the oven. Really freaking blows. I want to clean it up before SWMBO gets back but its too hot and I'm still brewing! Worst part about it is, when I poured in the hops, it immediately went to a full on boil over. From the looks of it, it looks like most of the Cascade hops are long gone now!I might adjust and add some of my other hops in a little earlier.
A spray bottle filled with regular water will keep the foam down too.
