I would also choose the citra. Next time though, get some el dorado hops and you will supercharge the strawberry flavors.

I may be missing this, but do you have any metrics on cooling more than 5 gallons of wort? I use MoreBeer 26 gallon heavy duty kettles and often brew 15 gallon batches.

Well, from my experience you can use small %'s of Carafa Special III to add some red to your beers. I use that in my Vienna Lager to push the color to red from a dark orange.

At the same time I...

I get the idea of culturing and that brett has a longer shelf life, but still if you are using something that can be purchased for less than $10 and pitching it into something that will sit for 9...

How long ago is a while? If you are going to let something sit on brett for 9 months it would probably be a good idea to pick up a new vial with fresh yeast considering the cost is so low.

Sounds like a plan with the Pacifica. Ive never used it, but Ill toss out the Nelson for it.

I also agree about the high % of specialty malts. I was too focused on the hops. How does this...

If you read above I suggested it because of their generic "NZ" hops. And as long as it is just a component of the hop bill and not a dominant, Nelson can blend well with the other hops listed.

Both sound like good brews. I think it was this thread, but someone said that Columbus is more Dank and I think thats a good description of its aroma contribution.

Really tough to say without knowing the specific Alpha %'s of your hops - can you post those?

If not, 88 IBU's for an assumed OG beer of 1.050ish is way out of balance. Adjusting it down to 69 is...
