    Sorry for posting this here, but it is of the most urgent importance! Due to a variety of
    reasons, I will have a very limited window to purchase my brewing ingredients from the LHBS and

    Thanks for that recipe, I'll definitely look into it! And might have to sample the dogfishead
    brew, if I can find it.

  • Posted in thread: Tell me about pumkin ale on 11-05-2011 at 01:33 AM
    You have to be careful with pumpkin ales, as I either LOVE them or completely hate them, and
    can't even drink them. I'm not sure what the difference is, but there seems to be some
    variation in basic r...

    Been brewing beer since December 2009, but I slacked for much of 2011 and have not made a beer
    since last Christmas. I'm hoping to get back into things though as I've saved up plenty of
    bottles and ha...

    I have it in a half whiskey barrel, climbing up some strings about 10 feet tall, and then
    lettimg them climb alond a horizontal rope. They grew fine, must faster than last year, but
    they produced abou...

    I was under the assumption that any hops you get in the first year are a bonus, and once you
    reach the 2nd year, your hop plant will start producing lots of cones.In 2010 my then first
    year Cascade gr...

    I'd be careful with the insecticide. You can't use very strong pesticides, as you'll be
    consuming the hops. I've been told insecticidal soap is just about the strongest you really
    want to be using to ...

  • Posted in thread: Trimming a plant now? on 07-06-2011 at 03:16 AM
    Yeah, I figured it shouldn't bee too bad. It's not like I have 15 bines, I have 6 and none of
    them seem to really be holding it back. I'll just see what happens. It seems to be a very
    healthy plant, a...

  • Posted in thread: Will Hops grow sideways across a chain link fence? on 07-04-2011 at 10:31 PM
    They will always grow verticle on their own, but if there is no other option, and you continue
    to train them, they will grow sideways.I actually have Cascade hops too. In their first year
    they reached...
