I sent them a follow up email, not expecting or asking for anything. Thanks for the input all.

Not yet. I wanted to gather some feedback from others as this was the first time that I've used

I just bought five pounds of pellet 2015 crop hops from farmhouse. I was dismayed that 2 of
five were sealed, but not vacuum sealed. Is this common for them?

I whirlpool in the kettle, let that settle, then transfer to the fermentor. I did drop trub,

Just kegged my first batch from a 7 gallon chronical. Love it so far! I normally hit 5.5 into a

If it's really stuck (ie I didn't clean it right after fermentation finished up), I do an
