I have a full pound of Columbus hops I've been meaning to use.

Can you recommend any recipes that use primarily Columbus?


I also have an ounce of chinook and centennial leftover.

Thanks!

I brew a hoppy stout that uses columbus and centennial. It's my favorite beer that I brew..I'm actually brewing it this weekend. I have an all grain recipe at home, but my extract version is listed on this forum. I screwed up the first time I brewed it and was supposed to get 1lb of Black Barley and accidentally got 1lb of Black Patent. Still turned out really good.

I have not. It's on my list of upcoming brews. The only other info I found for it was a sac rest at 152 for 45 min and sparge at 168.

I have another thread going on san Diego super yeast, I plan on brewing Saturday. Maybe I will try this recipe out with san Diego super yeast. I will mash at [email protected] 60min. I will update the results.

Sorry to the OP for jacking your thread, but just had a ahaa moment.

Take any of the readily available two hearted ale clone recipes and sub the Columbus for the centennial. You will get an amazing brew.

Personally Columbus is my favorite IPA hop. It starts out very pungent, herbal and even some slight onion sometimes and then transforms into amazing citrus with a little age.
