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.
