Major Blankety-Blank India Wit Ale

I have been having a hard time deciding what to brew next.  I want to brew another K├Âlsch I Said So, but haven't bothered to order the ingredients.  Instead, I kept trying new things.  That's my curse, I'm afraid.  So, while going through Radical Brewing: Recipes, Tales and World-Altering Meditations in a Glass, I came across this recipe:

Naturally, I screwed up the order and only bought 1 ounce of Kent Goldings.  So I improvised.  I used .75 ounces of Chinook at 60 minutes, and .75 ounces of Columbus at 20.  I got 1.058 instead of 1.060, so I'll call that a stand up triple.
