    Would it be worth adding Grub-Ex or some other grub pesticide to the lawn make a dent in the
    number of beetles that mature later on?

    got the same type of scraggly looking "pre-cones" on my Galena and Mt Hood. Nothing yet on
    the others. Galena will be the first to reach the top of my 15 ft trellis system in the next
    couple of days...

    I bought a big bag of pine bark mulch at home depot for like $3. I spread it about an inch
    deep, in a 9-12 inch radius around my first year hop sprouts. It does a great job deterring

    They say the typical growing season is 120 days. When's winter up there? If they're first year
    hops, plant them anyway. Their goal this season is just to develop a good root system. don't

    Try making a yeast starter (1-2 qts) from the liquid yeast packs a couple days before you brew.
    Also, if you have high SG (>1.065), you may be ready at 1.02. Easiest thing would be to just
    shake/stir ...

    Or use a metal plate on each handle, and then print your beer logo on magnetic media and you
    can swap easily that way.+1 I went this route and it works great! Made the handles from wooden
    table legs (...

  • Posted in thread: Big question... Stick w/ ales, or add lagers to my brewing? on 04-28-2009 at 06:39 PM
    I recently bought a house with a cool basement (~55F), so I tried brewing a couple lagers. When
    I measured the final gravity of the Oktoberfest lager and drank the sample, it was amazing
    (very clear a...

  • Posted in thread: What do you think? on 04-28-2009 at 01:51 PM
    Are the sticks attached to the wall somehow (can't see the apex in the photo)? If not, I'd be
    afraid they'd be blown over in a strong wind, especially once the hops grow tall enough that
    the leaves ac...
