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.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

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.
