Sorry man. Took a rock to the eye mowing on Sunday and tore the cornea of my right eye. I spent several hours at the opthamologists office yesterday and have been out of commission for the past few days. I'll update some pics when I get a chance, but have been staying away from the computer.

Here's some pics of the cones on my 1st yr. vines. The chinooks and cascades are producing better than expected. There is a handful on the columbus and just a few burrs on each of the centennial and hallertau, so not much production out of them. Nothing on the glacier, but there's always next year.

Default Looks pretty sweet!

From another Ortonville-ite - well done! I am thinking about only going Centennial next year (first hop planting) but hearing you say not much from the Centennials - may have to re-think that one. Nice pics - and sorry to hear about the accident - get better soon!

Thanks man. If you could get your hands on some crowns, you would have a much better shot at having them produce cones first year as opposed to rhizomes. Great Lakes sells crowns for a decent price.....not sure if they have cents tho. In a couple of years, I'll dig some rhizomes up for you if you would like....not sure if these 1st years will have any rhizomes off shooting in the spring, but if they do they are yours.

I picked up some crowns from Great Lakes last fall and highly recommend it: Centennial, Newport, Teamaker. All are doing great and producing cones this year. The teamaker has the best spot - up the chimney - and has dozens of cones. The other just have a handful (as you might expect for such young hops).

Of course.....I owe you way more than that! I'll let you know when brew day will be and we'll go from there. My fermentation chambers are almost complete, so I'm going to have a piggy back brewing session with a home grown IPA hop bomb and my very first lager. I figure, I've got two chambers, why not use them. I typically brew more like your buddy Paul, but I'm going TED style on this b*tch.....handfuls of home growns throughout the entire boil! I'm using every last 1st year cone, including Chinooks, Cascades, and Columbus. The Columbus is going in early and the rest continuously throughout the boil. I'm not measuring sh*t!

Check out my chamber builds when you get a chance.....just finshed the poly on the wood work and will be installing the cement board and tumbled travertine when I get back from the holiday weekend. Thanks again for the rhizomes my man!

Oh....here's the link if'n you want to check out the chambers. I built them to match the keezer.

HA! You don't think I already checked out the ferm. chamber build thread??! I need to get off of my ass and get a freezer to convert - picking up ingredients for three 10 gallon batches today if I can sneak out of work for a while...
Congratulations on letting go of the reins of control!!! Just write down about what you add and when (and try not to get too drunk). I'm currently on my 4th re-brew to try to re-create the beer that I made with my 1st home grown hops where they also all went into the boil. It turned out awesome and I NEED to make it again.
