I'm finally going to get to do this exactly as posted on Sunday (unless the world ends).
So much has been discussed in this thread and some great ideas but as was mentioned, I'll do it as original then I can make any tweaks that I might like in future brews.

Denny, thanks for sharing and your continual input in this one.

I did brew this Sunday and things were just about perfect. Came in at OG, had a huge starter and 10 hours later it was chugging along. I must say that the last 2 times I used 1450, it was slow and didn't last long. I noticed today, 3 days later that it's finally slowing and I like the smell.
I don't use Mt. Hood much but I do love me some Columbus.
My friends have heard me talk about this one so much, they can't wait. I love hoppy and so do they but we all also like a balanced beer. I think I'll bottle a few when I keg it so I can keep a few around a bit longer. I know the keg is going to kick quickly.

Don't keep it around too long. It's best in the first 2-3 months IMO.

So 3 weeks in the fermenter and how long in the keg before I should taste it at it's best? I usually let it set for 1 week at room temp in the keg then a week in the kegerator and start enjoying. Will that work ok with this one?

Probably so. Let your own tastebuds be your guide.

I made a trip to LHBS to get the ingredients minus the pale malt since I have a bag of it from a group buy. Total was $17 from LHBS and Im going to dump it on a yeast cake of s 05 from an APA im going to keg this weekend. Its going to be an exciting brew day with my new 10 gallon MT and SS CFC from williams. I put a ball valve on my BK also

This will do in the mean time

Tried a commercial micro brewery's rye IPA. Denny's recipe tasted better to me.

I have 2 L starter of 1450 going for a porter I'm brewing today. After reading this, I'll be saving a pint for the rye once one of my kegs frees up.

Id like to keep the recipe as is, but would like to keg hop on top of or instead of dry hopping. It can take me a while to get through a keg when I have a dozen other brews hanging around. Keg hopping tends to keep my pales and ipas "fresher" longer. Anyone else keg hop with this brew?

I always keg hop this beer, and almost always after dry hopping in the fermenter.
