Not something I would brew at all, but as long as you enjoyed it, that's all that matters. Given the name, I thought I would see Mt. Hood hops in here as well. I also don't understand how you only lost 0.6 gallons under a 90 minute boil.

I unfortunately have to leave the lid partially closed to get a good stove top boil. Also, the volume is an approximation. I REALLY need to mark off my boil pot and carboy better. I wanted to wordplay with the Summit somehow, and mountain was the only thing that came to mind.

It should really be MUCH less about the name of the beer, and more about the quality of the beer IMO.

I boil indoors under twin 4 gallon kettles and have no problem reaching a boil as long as I bring the water up to temp. first with a tight fitting lid before adding the extract sans the lid. A friend of mine boils 6 gallons indoors, straddling the kettle on two burners with no issue. I guess this would be difficult to do with an electric range.

I use gas and straddle two burners. I do not get the rolling boil I like to see without the lid. Every setup is different I guess.
