Looks to be a nice recipe. Columbus is one of my top 3 hops and I really never discovered them until I started homebrewing. You might think about posting that recipe in the recipe section for us all to refer to when we need a new brew.

Edit.....Duh!! I guess I didn't look where the recipe was posted in the first place. I feel rather dumb.

I have a question about your technique: how did you go about dryhopping? I've heard a lot of different techniques and was curious.

On a bitter I made a few weeks ago, I racked to secondary and chucked in about .75 oz of Crystal hop pellets. I let it sit for ~1.5 weeks and bottled last night. However, it didn't seem to have any discernable hop aroma or flavor...

Nice head retention, nice beer. Columbus is not my favorite but had enough to make this. Just a side note - I split a ten- gallon batch and made a hop burst - 40 min .5 0z; 10 min .5 oz; and a final 3.5 oz after chilling to 180. Then let sit for 30 min. Both were good, maybe liked the second one better
