Columbus and ???
« on: March 15, 2012, 08:18:21 AM »
I am looking for something that plays well with Columbus in a pale ale.  Thinking Citra, Amarillo maybe?

Yeah, those are fine, but think outside the box, too.  My rye IPA recipe uses Columbus and Mt. Hood.

Yes, it is, but the question was what goes with Columbus.

Let me rephrase it. Columbus goes well with Columbus. Is that better?

I like to use Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo for my House IPA recipe. For the dryhop I use equal proportions of Simcoe and Amarillo. I use the Columbus at 60 and 30min additions.

This gives me a good starting point I think.  Much appreciated!  I have had a few beers with Columbus in them and I really like it, I just never tried it myself. 

I like Bluesman's idea too.

My house IPA uses Columbus all the way from first wort to 30 Minute boil. This mellows the dankness which then plays nicely with some or all of the following: Chinook, Centennial, Cascade and lastly dry hopped with Amarillo.

I use all of that as well, and columbus at 20 and 10 and 0 minutes and dry hop. I love columbus. Intersting denny says columbus and mt. hood. I like columbus and french strisselspalt and/or crystal as well.

+1 I really like Columbus with Crystal. Actually, I could combine those two hops with prett much anything and would probably make a good AIPA.
So it goes.

If Simcoe and Amarillo were more available and affordable they too would also be used in my house IPA's.  I currently use Chinook in conjunction with Columbus for my house IPA's; the mark-up on Simcoe and Armarillo is ridiculous. Wish I could sneak on those hop farms for a rhizome.

I got a pound of each as soon as Freshops announced the 2011 crop last year. It doesn't last long in my house. I'll be out before the start of summer.

I'd like to try it with Mt hood someday. Maybe we should ask Denny to bring a sample to Seattle.  8)
