I'm making an IPA tonight, so it can ferment while I'm gone for PAX, Eureka, and Dragon*Con. (How's that for multitasking?!)

I just added 1.75 ounces of whole Columbus hops for bittering, and my house smells so good, I kind of want to do a little dance.

I'm adding Cascade for aroma, and Columbus again for flavor. When I get back from The Road, I'm going to dry hop with Cascade for a week.

So far, everything is going according to plan, and there haven't been any accidents (he said, tempting Fate), just good smells and the anticipation of something potentially wonderful in about a month.

Here's the first hops addition, swirling around my brewpot.
