    Happy to report.... Tonight I did a dual sparge on about the same grain bill. My 2nd sparge
    still yielded 1.028 gravit and my overall gravity was 1.065. My target as 1.070 and I ended
    about .25 gallon...

    Sounds like I need to use a little more sparge. The large grain bill probably soaked up more
    water and I compensated by added a little more water to the kettle. Thanks for the input. I'm
    brewing anoth...

    Why top off the kettle with a gallon of water vs running another gallon sparge through the
    grain? Topping the kettle with water is an efficiency killer.Even cold water will extract
    fermentables just f...

    My biggest fear was the possibility of un-fermentables in the final product. I did not due an

    down pretty good f...

    I grow mine just like yoopers example. I'm sure I could get better production with a taller
    setup but I use 8' decorative trellis' as privacy walls between you the neighbors. Due to me
    HOA I can't go ...

    I'd recommend crystal for wheats. It also does good in apa's. It grows like my other C hops,
    yet has a German flavor and is haut different. I've grown to really love them

    I run my dehydrator at 95 degrees for about 14 hours and that gets me down to about 18%
    moisture content. I've done over 5 lbs of cascades over the lady week. I pick a pound a night
    and package the fo...

    Anyone have any info on the neo mexicana's this season? We're in August, looking for some
    updates. In thinking of adding a multi head here in Colorado from Great lake hops.
