Just found this thread and I'm planning on trying it. Got an IPA that is sitting at 1.020 after

Awesome, thanks! I'll get a bigger pot for it and some mulch.As for the bottom, I just heard of
people making bigger holes to let the roots go, at least with the half barrels. I'll just leave
it be as...

Should I keep the pot closed, or put holes in the bottom to let the roots out? I assume keeping
it closed would be fine, then I can move it should I end up moving in the middle of the winter.

A buddy at work just gave me a cascade plant. I'm currently in an apt that I don't plan on
staying at for too much longer, maybe moving in 2 or 3 months. Is there a good way to start

I probably measured temps in cold/hot spots. I'll do a better job at stirring a bit before

cooler only dropped...

It's supposed to be an IPA, would the honey impart too much sweetness?I believe we noticed the

Thanks for all the feedback!I'll reconsider the oak. Maybe put a half ounce and see what it
does, or just cut it completely. And I like the idea of moving those 30 min hops to 15/10. Will

So I've finally been getting the basic equipment I'll need to start AG brewing, and I want to

Posted in thread: Zeus hops ruining the food in my fridge. on 09-26-2013 at 04:09 AM
I recently picked some Zeus hops from a buddy at work, and dried them. I don't have a vacuum
