So I bought a nice new 15 gallon kettle and proceeded to drill away at it for my ball valve and
bazooka screen. Well I didn't account for the hop trub that would settle at the bottom of the

another point worth mentioning about whole cones is that they will soak up more wort meaning
you will have to account for more wort loss during boil. I've done some big IPAs with 10oz of
whole cone ho...

Being a hop grower and a homebrewer, I would say whole cone hops out perform pellet hops any

that not everyone ...
