Anyone ever used the actual honey comb when making this?

I think I'm gonna try this one this weekend. Although I was lucky enough to get a pound of Simcoe last week, I'm going to assume that it will be the only Simcoe I get this year. So, I'm going to try not to use any of them with more than 30 minutes left in the boil. I'm thinking about substituting the 60 min Simcoe addition with something else. Maybe Magnum. Anyone have a reason why I wouldn't want to do this?

Just checked gravity after a week 1.04 from1.092, should I be concerned about stuck fermentation? Used 1.5 liter starter of California ale

What temperature were you fermenting? What did you mash at? Did you use yeast from the OP?

I'd go closer to 150 next time to get your FG down a bit, see where it ends up. You should still end up in the mid to high 20's, not bad at all.

So I forgot to get the Columbus for this when I picked up my ingredients. What can I use as a substitute? I got some extra Citra and some Cascade or should I just wait until the LHBS opens?

That is what I have been told also... As far as the Hops IBU's are concerned. More Aromatics than Bittering..Just got 2 ,Six Packs today.. Release day was today!!!!

brewed this one today. Hit an OG of 1.10! Dont think I can get closer than that. I used honey in mine and a 3 stage yeast starter with 1056 yeast. Hope I wake up to fermentation tomorrow morning!
