  • Posted in thread: Cloning HopHands by Tired Hands Brewing Company on 01-24-2016 at 02:50 AM
    Love their brews. I haven't attempted any clones, but I've certainly taken a note from their
    beer and an using a ton of oats in some of my recipes. Up to 20 percent. I'm not one for
    following recipes,...

  • Posted in thread: Heady Topper- Can you clone it? on 01-10-2016 at 02:07 AM
    Maybe similar, but not the real thing. Too flocculant. Haven't brewed yet, but the starter
    yeast cleared within a day after finishing. The real stuff i harvested from a can took a while
    to clear when ...

    My next heady will be w a new yeast. It's shipped in a can and called Barbarian. Claims to have
    200 billion cells as well. Got a starter going last night and it was ripping this morning.

    They always have expired yeast for half price at the lhbs. Most of the time they go off, but if
    it takes over 2 or 3 days i just toss them. Not worth ruining a batch. I've found a summer
    shipped batch...

    I know this post is 5 months old, but wouldn't champagne yeast be a bad idea? Those yeasts eat
    more sugar than an ale yeast, so might you not possibly end up with bottle-bombs? Unless you
    aren't using...

    23 oz Cascade, 8 oz Centennial dried. 3 Wet hopped beers containing a mix of centennial,
    chinook, cascade and columbus. Approximately 2 gallons of hops went into each brew. For me a
    gallon turns out a...

  • Posted in thread: Are these Hops Too Dry? on 09-09-2015 at 01:31 AM
    were they green when you picked them or did they have some brown in them? I don't think they're
    too dry, but if they smell stale I wouldn't use them. I usually package up my hops after 3 days
    on a scr...

  • Posted in thread: Growing hops with dogs. on 09-09-2015 at 01:27 AM
    Wow. I must have gotten lucky. My dog is only about 35 lbs and has eaten a bunch of fresh hops
    and leaves off the plants in my yard over the last 3 years. When he has an upset stomach, he'll

    Nope, in fact, the smaller you can crush them the better. Get all that oxygen out of there!

    agreed with the above. Those look a bit young. I like the stage just before they start showing
    brown, but even a little brown doesn't hurt.They will feel sort of papery and smell pungent.
