    ABOUT ME

  • I love porter and stout.
  • Brewing and Basketball
  • My first two batches were West Coast Pales from Mr Beer. Batch 3 was an American Wheat with a little Honey brewed using washed Mr Beer yeast. I know that doing so was crazy, but I wanted to experiment on a small batch. My 4th recipe was brewed using a yeast that I harvested from a Hoegaarden bottle. I basically took the same recipe from batch 3 and did it with Hoegaarden yeast.
  • Batch 5 - Caribou SlobberrnBatch 6 - Irish StoutrnBatch 7 - Pale Ale
  • Male
  • Single

    Yep. Those flowers are now in a bag dropping pollen (hopefully). If it goes well, I should be
    able to offer it to those on my list soon. You all still have plants in the burr stage,
    correct?I have a f...

    Something that may be of interest: is precisely the reason why I think it is so important for
    homebrewers to grow their own and try to breed their own hops. For me it is just as important
    to create ...

  • Posted in thread: Has anyone grown Neomexicana hops? on 06-28-2014 at 03:57 AM
    I am growing Neo-1 in Southern California. It started slowly, but has taken off recently. It
    seems to like this really hot weather once it gets established.

    The weather in Oregon has been pretty optimal this year. Planted 45 seedlings in the early
    spring and culled the slowest growing 20%. The rest are doing really well. Most are over 10'
    and covered in b...

    You may not have done anything wrong. From what I've noticed you would need about 200 or so
    seeds at a 10 to 15% germination rate, to get maybe 3-4 plants that are hardy.I hope to be able
    to get a mal...

    I have no surviving seedlings, but the Neomexicana that I grow from rhizomes as well as the
    Smooth Cone that I grew from cutting are doing well. I will have to do things differently next
    time. I think...

    Lot of pages to read though so forgive me if I've missed something. One of the problems with
    breeding hops at home is lack of access to male plants - and the difficult in identifying
    worthwhile traits...

    I don't mean a debbie-downer but...I've run into this issue before. Single-node cuttings do
    work! Herein lies the issue with single-node cuttings, is that that one node is now doing twice
    the work. Pa...

    I have wait almost 2 weeks to put them where they get direct sunlight almost all day long.
    Before that, they were receiving only the sunlight from 4PM to 5PM. But you are in California,
    I guess that s...

    This might be straying from the thread a little bit, but I have a question about rooted
    cuttings and sunlight. I have some cuttings that I have successfully rooted.I rooted them in
    rock wool cubes and...
