All, I have a second year hop plant and it is really taking off this year! I have a setup where
they grow up a wire to my privacy fence and then I train them to grow on the wire horizontally

Arc light. I hate that. Every time I hear that something terrible happens.HAHAHAHA!! :mug:I
never check gravity before I decide fermentation is done. I wait 14 days and then I bottle. I
do check it on...

I love that you drank some before asking if it is was safe :rockin:I have had this happen and
never noticed any ill affects.-Klink

I usually do 14 days fermenting and then 3 weeks on bottle. I would add, put the bottles in the
fridge for 3 days before opening them. This lets more of the CO2 soak in.

Jeez, maybe you should go back to that first LHBS and tell them they sold you dead yeast and
make them give you a replacement at no charge. Hell, they should give you as many packs as it
takes to get ...

Hi all, I bought a smack pack the other day from my LHBS. I noticed it was 5 months old and
expressed my concern to the guy there who insisted it would be fine. Well, the packet barely
swelled at all ...

I would say some of them are as old as 9 months. Each type are in individual sandwich bags and
all of those are in a ziplock freezer bag.

Hi All, I am going to brew an IPA next week. I have some leftover hops in the freezer. I am
thinking of using some of the extra frozen hops for dry hopping. However, I am not sure if I
would be better...
