All Columbus Hop IPA with wet hops

    I have a friend who started growing hops last year because a brewery he toured gave him a couple of free rhizomes. He lives just a couple of miles from and I thought it would be cool to do an IPA with all Columbus Hops grown on his property. Last year he dried and vacuum sealed the hops. This year I thought about doing the same recipe with a couple of slight adjustments in the recipe. Added to the 90 min addition to get a little more bitterness. Also, at the last minute I chickened out on the Belgian yeast and used WLP001. Maybe this year I will use the belgian yeast.

    Any thoughts?

    I think the Belgian yeast would be really good in this .....
