    Hopefully I will have some tasting notes on this recipe soon.Look forward to reading them. I've
    never used Motueka and am curious how it works with Nelson Sauvin. Also, would be interested to
    see if y...

    Hope it helps. To me Nelson is a great flavor/aroma hop. That quarter ounce at 20 wouldn't have

    some flavo...

    I'd rather see a full ounce of Nelson at 20 minutes and another full ounce at dry hop and

    I asked the question to gauge the knowledge level of the OP.

  • Posted in thread: Looking for a Dual tap tower on 08-18-2014 at 08:18 PM

    Why do you get to choose the RIGHT and WRONG reasons for starting the hobby? If you start
    brewing to save money, it's not a hobby. It's a job!I have no problems with that. I can't
