Columbus IPA - All Grain Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

(Makes 5 gallons) A great IPA recipe that features the high oil content Columbus hop in the finish. Lots and lots of aroma combined with very evident hop flavor.  The Columbus hop flavor and aroma help work to soften the apparent bitterness. The malt and grain remains the same as the American IPA recipe.

Bench mark IPA
I recently had a neighbor ask me if there was grapefruit in the beer. I've brewed this beer several times and it is becoming a bench mark IPA for me.

Great Beer!
10 days in primary. Fermented around 60? ambient which kept primary at like 62?. Followed hop schedule and mashed at 152? for an hour. Boiled 60 mins. Dry hopped with 1 oz nugget for 2 days. Kegged for less than a week and all ready delicious. At 2 days with some force carbing it was good, but now a few days later it's great. Used us-05 and fined keg with gelatin. Will jump to a 3 gallon keg and beer gun some to save. Good stuff

Outstanding, my new favorite IPA
After a year of 1 gallon all grain I switched up to 2.5 gallons (got an excellent 3-gallon ported carboy from MoreBeer), this was the first recipe I tried (2 batches from 1 kit). I'm really happy about how this turned out, I used the recommended Safale yeast and didn't make any alterations, and the beer is truly excellent! Great aroma and bitterness, just how I like it. I did a taste test between this, Sam Adams IPA, Founders All Day IPA, and Two Roads Honeyspot IPA, this was actually my favorite of the four. Will definitely be brewing this as my go-to IPA going forward.

Really Good Pale Ale / IPA
When I bought this, I was a little nervous about 1) a beer with 1.5 lbs of crystal malt and 2) an all columbus beer. I mashed at 154 and let it cool down to 148. I used a combination of US-05 and Imperial Pub yeast. I am happy to report that this kit makes an outstanding beer. Excellent full body and nice citrusy hops flavor and aroma. The beer is well balanced with moderate bitterness that is not harsh. It is not overly sweet. High marks.

Really great beer!
I brew about 200 gallon of beer a year in different styles, but mostly concentrate on Pale Ales and IPAs. But this one is an all time favorite of mine. I did add my own twist to it though by dry hopping after 7 days with 4 oz of Willamette hops. I like it even more like that, but even with out adding the dry hops to the basic recipe, it is a very solid beer. Can't go wrong with the Columbia IPA. I highly recommend it.

This was my first brew and it turned out great. Family and friends love it and as it ages it gets even better. I would highly recommend this for a first timer and I will be making this again.

Great Brew
I made this a few weeks ago. I don't normally post reviews, but this batch is so tasty I just had to. Tastes really great for such a simple grain bill and hop schedule. I added 2 ounces of citra for a dry hop for 6 days. Excellent beer at a great price. Pitched safale 05 for a clean finish.

Has Become One of My Favorites
Never was much of an IPA drinker till I discovered this one. It's a perfect balance of hops and drink-ability. I keep returning to it because I always miss it when I don't have it on tap. Downside is everyone else loves it also and it seems to disappear quickly.

Columbus is Dank!?
Yup, I've heard it said again & again, and I thought, "what the heck does that mean?" Wow!!!! This is some danky stuff!!!! I'm a believer. Get it, try it, you won't be sorry.
