Default Ahhhh advice needed quickly

I order the big honking stout kit from northern brewers and there are 2 1oz packs of hops but the instructions are screwed and it says add the columbus hops at 60 and add the columbus hops at 1 minute. Well, there's columbus pellet and there's summit pellet. Which do you think should be bittering and which should be aroma/flavor? Summit is 18.5% Alpha and the Columbus is 13.5%

I would go with Columbus for bittering for sure, and Summit for aroma. Apparently Summit hops have a very strong aromo profile and from what I can tell on the internet and other recipe's summit can be used for Bitterning/aromo

That's just me though

I still steeping grains but if I don't get any response I'm going with the higher alpha to offset the huge amount of extract. Seems logical.

I'm the exact opposite of grimmy- Summit hops tend to be higher AA as well as a bit citrusy which you don't want in a stout. I'd use the summit for bittering and the columbus later on.

The summit definitely has more aroma. If it will result in a more malty brew, maybe that's a good thing. My wife doesn't like the bitter brews

I'd use the Summit for bittering and skip the Columbus altogether. Why would you use high AA flavoring hops in a stout anyway?

Well, the summit was my first guess so I guess that's what I'll go with. I'm sure it will rock either way This is my 3rd batch and I'll tell you what, I love making beer. I'm brewing whilst enjoying an awesome Scottish ale that will probably be the house brew.

sounds good.... either way it will work out for you. Let me know how it turns out with the hop aroma.

Cheers,

Ooopps I found it. It says 1oz of summit at 60, .5 oz of columbus at 15 and .5 columbus at 1.
