I was very excited to hear about your success! I posted a thread asking the exact same thing (except my recipe bittered with Columbus). I've never had the pleasure of using either one of these hops, but with your seal of approval, I'm very excited!

So I brewed this recipe yesterday and I'm very excited to see how it turns out.

The only difference was that I added 1 tsp of irish moss at the 15 minute mark during the hop additions. And I dry pitched the yeast.

I usually siphon from kettle to primary (after the wort is cooled of course), but this time poured the whole kettle into the primary and didn't siphon or run it through a strainer/funnel. I still made sure to leave behind the hop sludge.

My OG was pretty spot on right about 1.056

My plan is to do 21 days in primary then transfer for 7 days in secondary with dry hop.

My only concern is my kettle lid may not have been super clean when I used it this time. I scrubbed it but it with PBW before I started, but it still had some residue. Of course I was able to get it all off after the brew....

O well, I'm trying to RHAHB.

What were you doing with the kettle lid? The only time I use the lid is to help heat mash water a bit faster.

I had it on while it was heating up to boiling before I added the LME, and I had it on the kettle when it was in the ice bath in my sink to drop temp after the boil.

The lid was clean and it was on during the boil so it should have been sanitized, it just had a slight amount of residue that I must have not scrubbed all the way off beforehand..I didn't really think anything of it until afterward and of course I was like "crap, did I screw it all up?!?"

I think your thinking about it too much. If you hadn't noticed the residue you wouldn't be freaking out. So just wait it out. I bet it turns out drinkable.

Yea I'm not really too worried about it right now. It is what it is.
