Hop Hash - has anyone used it in the Z? I would think that using it as a 5-10 minute addition
or in the keg would add a huge blast of hop character. I was thinking say 0.5 ounce in the keg

grain, but I hav...

Can you provide a link to the FB page? My Google Foo only finds the PicoBrew
site...https://www.facebook.com/groups/picrobrewers/. It's a closed group, but I don't think

Also - customer service - as if a month ago or so it was still the same top notch lightning
speed response from them / Saturday, Sunday, any day. I think it's because they are so good

From the perspective of someone who has had the Z for a year and half now - the "bug" to me is

I like the work being done by the guys at Brulosophy and I'll continue to follow them. There is
