I just designed this beer that I plan on brewing in a few days. I've never used Apollo hops and I'm wondering what you all think about this recipe. Also, since I ferment my bigger batches in 2 vessels, I'm thinking about using WLP001 in one batch and WLP090 (San Diego Super Yeast) in the other, just for comparisons sake. I'm open to all opinions!

Looks great! I love Apollo in my dIPA's. I might remove the Columbus from the dry hop (the pine might take away from the nice citrus you are going to get from that Citra) maybe sub Cascade?

Yeah, that's good advice. However, I'm looking more for dank than citrus solely.

Okay... how about upping the Simcoe dry hop to 32 and removing the CTZ altogether? Or I guess I could just dry hopp with about 80 grams Citra (40 g per fermenter)...

Thoughts on this? I guess I can also just dry hop with a sh*t ton of Citra, though I'm partial to combining hops in the dry hop. Hmm.

Also, check this out... I made a 4L starter of WLP001 yesterday with the intention of using half the yeast in 5.5 gallons of this beer then saving the other half. I also made a 2L starter of a harvested/washed WLP090 that I plan on pitching into the other 5.5 gallons of this beer. Anyone ever harvest yeast using this method (from a starter)? Seems kosher to me, but I've never done it.

Just finished brewing this beer. 1.071 OG and about .75 gallon of wort lost to trub... so many f*cking hops! I very rarely brew IPA as I think they're a tad played out, and I like to have a few beers before feeling too wasted. Anyway, this should come in right around 7.8% ABV with a lot of hop flavor and aroma. As I mentioned before, I pitched WLP090 (washed and saved from a prior batch) into half of the wort and WLP001 (new) into the other half. I've heard 090 is the most flocculent cells from 001, hence their similar flavor characteristics. It should be interesting to see if I notice any significant differences. I'll be sure to update!

Cheers.
