  • Posted in thread: Are my hops any good? on 08-30-2015 at 12:56 AM
    I tried taking photos but the lighting alters the appearance. They're an light green/white
    mixture (very pale) and have very little lupulin. The lupulin is not the classic "school bus
    yellow" and they...

  • Posted in thread: Are my hops any good? on 08-29-2015 at 06:09 PM
    This summer I was busy and wasn't home very often. I haphazardly strung up one part of my hop
    vine and let the rest brow wild across the ground like a bush. Now that it is time to harvest
    for me, I am...

    Hi, I'm making a 5 gal. batch of an amber ale, which calls for 1 lb. of cara-amber, but my

    I have seen pla...

    Ok, I think I'll ad my recipe to the recipe section today. After trying my concoction
    yesterday, I found it was sweet, but VERY good tasting. However, I made mine in a plastic water
    bottle, and becaus...

    Ok! I will certainly keep you guys posted on my recipe. Due to the fact of how old this is (at
    least 1000 years old), I think I will stick to buying the flour, which is pretty much the
    ground up grain...

    I am trying to make banana beer, but I am unclear of the process as it comes to the malt. I
    know that it has to be sorghum or millet, but it says roasted cereal? Do i literally bake
    cereal and pulveri...

    I did try that.
