    Would love a club although life usually gets in the way and meetings are hard to attend. I bet
    we could talk Bowser into letting us meet there. On second thought not sure if I can be in a
    club with a ...

    Well, just found a leak in my gas line from a slightly cocked gas QD with a poor-fitting
    o-ring. Is the general consensus for pin lock QDs to use the silicon 10mm x 16mm x 3mm o-ring?
    Has anyone tried...

    I don't have access to any other fields. :(If you can get to Montana I lend you as many acres
    as you want.

    Tried the Swaging tool and it worked very well. Put it in a vice and pointed a heat gun at the
    tool. [ame] Swaging Tool

    Thanks for the info.For both the pin lock gas and beer posts I have been using the 10mm (ID) X
    16mm (OD) X 3mm (W) for over a year. They work great.

    I would guess your lower Conlon yields are due to lack of fertilizer. Your soil needs about
    1.6lbs N, 0.3lb/ac P, and 5lb/ac K for every bushel. If possible the P should be 2" below the
    seed. Definite...

    Cold smoke is hard to find in GF as the brewery has had to pull back the area to meet demand.
    The best bottle shop is Vintage Cellars. Can't really take their beer on a plane, but stop by

    Plans will likely change, but now going to soak in a water trough. Then sprout on my basement
    floor. Kilning maybe in a modified cloths dryer...maybe. I am very open to ideas.

Hi I'm just beginning to imagine growing my own hops in Missoula. Do you have any suggestions about what grows well up here in MT?

Ahoy again, how'd the last season go? I just noticed yer a farmer situated near Great Falls ... I'm an aspiring grower and homebrewer myself ... can't wait to grow some quinoa grains for a beer next year! And hops of course ... do those hop rhizomes still reside on yer farm? If so, what's the possibility of shipping them down south to Missoula?
