  • Posted in thread: Do gophers eat hops? on 07-28-2016 at 08:40 PM
    Nothing eats mine and we have every suburban animal there is. Raccoons, deer, squirrels,
    chipmunks, and more. One thing, though - I have pretty ideal conditions but still lost two of
    the four rhizomes...

  • Posted in thread: Recipe With Fresh Hops? on 07-28-2016 at 08:36 PM
    I have not been successful at freezing fresh hops. They will probably have a very funky aroma
    when you open them. Good luck! And if you have a source for fresh hops, they are probably just
    about ready...

    I've used ginger, cinnamon, coriander and a few others. My usual rule is that you add them at
    flame out. The water will still be plenty hot to kill off any contaminants. Extended boils can
    eliminate t...

    Unless you are striving for some level of recipe purity for it's own sake or for a competition,
    you'll be fine. Your beer should be delicious, though it might be a bit off from "standard"

    As for the wand, take it apart (they can be pulled apart). It will have sludge trapped it.
    Clean it out, reassemble and sanitize it.

    Wow, this is like an old friend that you haven't seen in a few years dropping in. : )

    From five years ago? My guess is that it's forgotten.

  • Posted in thread: Beer bottled without priming sugar on 04-05-2014 at 02:23 PM
    On the other hand, you could just let it sit for about three months. I forgot the priming sugar
    once, and that's what I did. It came out fine but it's not fast.

    Never mind. I did a bunch of reading all over the 'net and I've decided that I'll stick with
