Posted in thread: Hops Yellowing from the Ground Up on 07-29-2015 at 02:09 AM
I don't believe that I have spider mites -I've checked for those. Overwatering could be a
possibility. I struggle with that because some places you read to use up to a gallon a day and
other places I ...

Yeah sorry the pictures aren't the best-I was more trying to show the different shades of
colors as you look up the plant. Thanks for these suggestions though!

I've noticed that my 2nd year Centennial hop leaves have been slowly yellowing from the ground
up for the last 3-4 weeks or so. The pictures below don't show it the best, but I've been
cutting off the...

I had the lid to keep "things" out of the top tray. Since its in the garage, we have bugs and
whatnot that could find their way in. I'd rather make it more difficult for critters to find
their way in....

Finally getting around to building this... Just wondering if there is a benefit to having the
top/cover on the oast? My thought is that eliminating it should increase airflow and also free
up more ply...

Checked it tonight and it was only at 1.026, but it was still chugging away. I guess I'll just

Went down in the basement today to take another sample and found that it was blowing off into

for now an...

Not yet. I plan to either tonight or tomorrow morning. I'll post the results. I know 2565 is a
slow yeast-I just can't believe that it's this slow. That's why I was hoping to get some
feedback from ot...
Posted in thread: Bee Cave Brewery Oktoberfest Ale on 06-26-2015 at 04:10 AM
I brewed a slight variation of this last year for an Oktoberfest block party. I had only 5 lbs
of Pils and 5 lbs of Vienna, so I added a lb of Victory to make up the difference.
Additionally, I had no...

Let me start out by saying in all my AG batches, I've never had one stall. I pitched a 2L
starter of Wyeast 2565 (Kolsch) in 5gal of 1.066 wort on Sunday. Fermentation took off quickly
