Toss in your flameout hops, cover your kettle, then set your timer. I like 60-80 minutes for an IPA, but even 20-30 minutes will give you a nice boost. Afther the hop stand, whirlpool and chill as normal.

I go the other way: whirlpool after flameout, then rest. I figure as long as you're incorporating a long rest, you might as well use it to compact that trub cone.

Ok, sounds like I am making some progress here!  let me throw a wrench in the mix, what if I replace the Cascade with CTZ?  Just realized I am out of Cascade and do not have time (live in a small rural town) to get more, but I have plenty of CTZ.  I realize this will change the flavor profile, but I usually get some nice dankness from CTZ and that change would be ok with me. What do we think?

Love me some Columbus. Sounds like a tasty swap to me.
