    Dont worry about it. I'd brew this in a second as a 6% ipa. You'll still end up with a great
    beer, except the in your face hops may stand out a little more. Is that ever a bad thing?

    If I have a plan for a big barleywine RIS or tripel maybe. Im at the point where I brew 1-2x a
    month. I keep a sack of 2 row, pils and Marries Otter on hand as well as a bunch of hops and
    small amount...

    Lots of belgians are carbed like your beer. I wouldn't worry so much about bombs but if its
    just a standard ale it might be extra fizzy

    Man. Its hard to do a pliny with out ctz. Chinook will certainly mark a good beer though. I

    Always chill to your target ferment temp unless you're experimenting or are going for something
    non-typical. My common practice. Chill to 65 for most ales, 50 for lagers, oxygenate by shaking
    or pure ...

    Right you are! Last time I did all cascade and mostly basemalt, my beer came out tasting like
    grapefruit juice.30 min left. Get those hop schedules in!

    I have an IPA mashing right now . Pick my hop schedule from the following hops and I'll use the
    one I like best. By the way, I'm looking to use up as much cascade as possible. By the looks of
    my plant...

    It's a very forgiving yeast... And you pitched cool. I think you'll end up w a good brew. No
