Put the beans in the secondary. If you boil them, you'll get astringent flavors from the bean husks, PLUS you'll boil away all the aroma. You might be able to get away with putting them in at...

JesusMaryandJoseph! Did you go the last 10 years with ZERO bad luck, only to have it all happen to you at ounce?

I added about 7 pellets every 5 minutes. If I did it again, I'd add .5 oz. at 60 and spread the rest out over 30 min.

Hmmmm...I'm currently enjoying one of these, and the bitterness is much less than I recall tasting out of the bucket. Honestly, I might even add a little more warrior at 60 to bitter it up even...

Warrior vs Columbus for bittering

I know that Warrior is renowned for being a clean bittering hop, but I've never bittered with columbus before. How do the two compare? It would be used as a First Wart Hop (a pre-boil addition).
