Epic. And that glass is brilliant too. I just thumbed through this thread and saw dozens of variations of this recipe. I too have an unhealthy obsession with simcoe. What has been your favorite version of the recipe so far?

Hey Half Wit, I too am a sucker for Simcoe. I think my favorite iteration has been using Simcoe to bitter, Amarillo to flavor at 20 min and Simcoe and Cascade(1/2 oz each) at 5. Then dryhop with 1 oz of each Simcoe, Cascade and Amariilo.

Same grain bill as the original?

Well the imperial version came out great! Hasn't fully carbed but it is already a popular brew around here! I have to say the Citra/Columbus combo is great - especially the dry hop aroma. I did 2 additions of 1oz of each for 4oz total and it is pretty outstanding.

You inspired me to use my backyard Columbus and some 2012 Citra that needs a home:

I just did a freshly picked and dried, (not wet) all-Columbus original grain bill IRA on Sunday. Smells great. Did a 20 gallon batch with a buddy. Hops: 2 oz Columbus at 60, 3 oz at 20, 5 oz at 5. I have two 5 gallon fermenters bubbling away with WLP 060 (American Ale Blend). Will dry hop one fermenter with all Columbus and the other with Columbus and Citra. Post results in a few weeks.

Cheers,
Tim

Awesome! Sounds amazing. Did you mix up pounds and kilograms and do an imperial like me? My keg is nearly tapped I will have to brew this again. I'll be watching for your results!

Hi,

This brew looks good! I'm planning on brewing it up based on the original recipe, though I will probably alter the crystals down to 1kg as advised in a few other posts. I have a question regarding water. I am in London UK, is there a specific water profile you are using or should I just go with what I've got coming out of the tap.

Thanks in advance

Robski

Robski try it with local water as is first. I use very soft Portland OR water and add a little gypsum to hit about 100 ppm dissolved minerals. I have made without adding any minerals and can't say I notice a difference.

All Columbus IRA is very good. Has a firm bitterness that cuts through the malt well. Dank aroma works with Munich and dark malts nicely. Would have to try head to head with original recipe to say what's better, but certainly Columbus works well here. I dry hopped one half with 2 oz Columbus and other half with 1 oz each Amarillo,cascade and Columbus. I actually prefer the all Columbus dry hop. Just seems to go better with the Columbus flavor. Was going to dry hop with Citra, but decided to save those for another beer.

Cheers!

Tim
