Glad I have another 5.5 gallons of this in primary! I brewed this on 10/13 and I only have 8 more bottles. Never used this yeast before, I really like it. It took almost a full month to clear, but the beer is WONDERFUL if you're patient. I'm kegging my next batch, and will be dry hopping in keg with .75oz of columbus.

Denny is da man!

Use at least an oz., maybe 2. You won't regret it.

Another week or so before full carbonation needed. Thank goodness the cold crash cleared up the brew. Lost a little bit to the trub deities but not nearly as much as the wort coming out of the mash had me thinking.

Best wishes to all my fellow brewers and family/friends.

Opened a chilled one tonight. The dank aroma from Columbus hops brings to mind being in moss covered woods. Taste is smooth and barely bitter with good mouth feel. Swallowing leaves the tongue/mouth pleasantly dry. An interesting IPA to keep in the mix.

Thanks for the recipe.

Barely bitter? Wow, it should be a lot more than that!

Probably not the best choice of words but the bitterness is not sharp. Very drinkable and leaves a pleasant dryness. Some IPAs have a distinct sharpness. I'll have others sample and get their opinion. Being a long time IPA drinker, my palate is assuredly "biased" (abused?) from higher IBU brews.

Hi all, I was just about to dry hop for a week- but just realized I was given Columbia instead of Columbus.

I have 1 ounce of Columbus pellets left over, so it's not too bad.

Should I just limit myself to the 1 ounce of Columbus, or add 1 ounce or 2 of Simcoe, amarillo, cascade, or columbia?


thanks!

I also have older Whole leaf Columbus- which smell fine just subdued and lackluster.

Assuming this is your first try I would just do the 1 oz of Columbus. Bad mistake by the LHBS though so I feel your pain. I'll be brewing this one myself in a week and am going 100% off the recipe as it's my first time. Having read this 31 page thread I have to laugh how often people want to substitute the recipe on their first go round. Just follow the recipe at least once! After that you can add/subtract to your preference but all the questions about lowering rye % or changing the yeast or hops were quite amusing. I'm sure Denny has tried more nuanced experiments to this recipe than all of us posters combined yet he ended with THIS recipe so let's all just at least try it once the original way.
