Denny, nice hop combo. 

Yea, I am loving the fact that Denny is using '07 Columbus :o

Well the hydro sample tasted a little funky, I am really hoping I did not ruin my Brown with that Special Roast.
Time will tell I guess, but is 8 ounces of special roast over the top?

I use 1.25lbs special roast in my old ale  :o

That's just leftover in Promash.  They were actually 2010 Columbus.

I like the special roast and possibly some pale chocolate.

Mt Hood at FWH sounds real nice and I also like the Chinook at flame out. I would mash it at 154F for some medium body to accompany the hops.

:D All is well with the world again.

Well the initial funk is gone, and I got my first roasty hop burps off it last night.
I think I am going to like the style.  Hops seem a little muddled still, might go a bit simpler next round.

Cheers, thanks for the thoughts.
