Please read the thread before providing a negative comment. My comments about the Columbus were with respect to the OPs recipe where he added the Columbus at 60 and 30 ........ Therefore it is just providing bittering.

It was not a comment on the hop itself.

A 60 minute addition will add flavor to beer. It is subtle but it does add flavor. If anyone doesn't believe me make a 60 minute only addition beer and find out for yourself (all pale malt and an intense hop like citra or chinook would best exemplify this).

30 minute additions add flavor too, I have never seen anyone argue that point before.

I agree with you on the fact that they do add some flavor, but not nearly as much as later additions. I've done 30 min additions but have skipped them entirely now because I sort of view it as a waste of hops. I'd rather be getting either bittering or aroma/flavor, but 30 minutes just seems to hang in between.

Yes same here, I like to do FWH, and then 20, 15, 10, 5, 0 for hop forward beers. Later additions defenitly have a greater impact on flavor and aroma, I just wanted to clarify about the misconception on this site about early additions contributing nothing but bitterness.
