    If it were me, I'd just use them as addy hop and call it good

    What variety are they?

  • Posted in thread: Growing hops on 07-12-2014 at 10:20 PM
    Alpha acid. Generally the higher the AA, the more bitter they are.

    And the average AA of said variety.

  • Posted in thread: Growing hops on 07-12-2014 at 10:11 PM
    Depends on the variety.

    If you want to cut the dip tube, you really don't need any special equipment a 10 dollar pipe
    cutter will cut it just fine. You can get them on Amazon or any big box home improvement store

    I calibrate my thermometers at the Mash temp, not boiling and I use a Glass thermometer to
    calibrate the one on my mash tun.

    I've used twist off bottles accidentally before. The cap was harder to attach. It seemed to
    seal just fine. Didn't even notice until I opened the bottle. I don't make a habit of it

    When making extract only batches, sometimes if you don't mix it well enough before taking the
    gravity, the "Heavier" extract will stay the bottom wiht the thiner water at the top and it
    could skew you...
