I'm making Hoppiness is an IPA from BCS.

Hops schedule:
1oz horizon 60 min
1oz centennial 10 min
1oz simcoe 5 min
1oz amarillo flameout

I don't have the horizon and was gonna sub columbus.
Since its just for bittering, I figure it would be ok.
Am I right in this assumption?

Thanks

No problem, I use Columbus for bittering in most of my beers. Has something to do with the deal I got on 2 lbs of pellets, but it's a good bittering hop of Pales and Bitters.

Just make sure you accurately weigh that sucker out - a half gram off and your bitterness will be quite different from what you expect.
