  • I've wanted to get into home brewing for years. Then one day I saw an ad in the newspaper for my LHBS, with a coupon no less. So I said to hell with it, went down, and got an Ale Pail kit. Since that faithful day, I've been on HBT sporadically, and have amassed a wealth of knowledge regarding proper brewing technique, etc. rnrnI've made a stir plate (yay!), bought a top-end grain mill -- among other things. I've brewed some really kick-ass beer, with the exception of one experimental batch that started off good, but then hit you with an after-taste that could gag a maggot. Lesson? Watch those off the wall experiments.rnrnBut anyway...rnrnI have a couple good recipes, so check 'em out.

    Regarding treated vs untreated....very long story short, contemporary treated lumber uses a
    copper compound that's entirely safe unless you're eating it by the spoonful.Regarding the
    beds, it's common...

    Update: 5/7 Brewer 5/7--------------------- 5/14 Brewer 5/14---Centennial's taking off
    pretty good. Northern Brewer is still kind of puttering along but seems to be digging in. I

    Are you growing diagonally from the beds to the poles, then run the hops down the clothesline
    towards the crown (making a 45 angle)? That can be your additional length you need to allow
    for 30+ feet ...

    I just did the opposite...from Los Angeles to the northeast. I can tell you California takes
    agricultural imports very seriously. CA produces the majority of the country's [non-meat] food.
