Good answer :-)

I'd expect, by throwing it in at the start of the sparge, you get the tiniest amount of color, but very little flavor?

Or vice versa??
Pretty much the same thing I'm guessing. Just a little touch of depth to the gold. No flavor contribution at all with an ounce or two at most in a 10 gallon batch. However, I've never made the recipe true, so, what do I know. For all I know the roasted B did nothing. There's no roast in flavor at all, but it is a lil bit deeper in color than my IPA next to it. That's the dirty blonde on the right, next to "Drop It Like It's Hop" IPA, next to my Cascadian Darkness. Brewin's fun. Just got my Keggle workin' so... You know... It's over

just had my first taste of my batch (original recipe + wyeast 1322) after 2 weeks carbonation, it's quite easy to drink (I wouldn't say tasteless or tastes like Corona) and I'm looking forward to trying it another week. thanks again for the recipe you are a machine BM!

Looking forward to bottling this tonight.

I've been messing around with some label designs. Think I'm going with something like the below, either on a necker or on a label. Dunno yet.

Just sampled the 2nd half of my 10g batch
dry hopped 5days with 2oz Belma pellets in a 5g batch. (the first half had no dry hop)
At kegging and a day later I'm getting a solid tropical fruit, pineapple melon orange flavor contribution.
Without a doubt the Belma impacted the flavor in the final beer. I'm happy with it for sure, but surprised. I've never really noticed any flavor contributions from dry hopping in my past brews, but 2 ounces of Belma,5 days @ 65-75*F, turned my great beer into something more like amazing. Thanx BM! Your recipe rules!

Brewed this in mid-August (subbed Columbus for Centennial) and have had it in the primary up until about 2 weeks ago. Popped the first bottles tonight and it is fantastic! I'll be making it again for sure.

Just brewed 8.5 gals of this. I used Whirfloc and it precipitated a nice amount of cold break, but I didn't siphon around it. I'm sure it'll be delicious anyways.
