Posted in thread: First year cascades barely have a smell!? on 08-17-2014 at 03:03 PM
My Cascades do the same thing. I've had good luck vacuum packing them whole after drying, then

I took my first harvest 3 days ago and the hops are done drying today. These are first year
cascade plants that did really well. I got 15.25oz wet which came out to 3.15oz dried. My

I'm not sure you'll get a full 1.5oz. I got almost a pound (15.25oz) wet on my first harvest

Posted in thread: US-05/WLP001 for sweet stout? on 08-20-2013 at 06:40 AM
How about Wyeast 1272? It finishes a little sweeter than 1056 and still results in a clean

I've never had one get this clear, but then again my wheats never really last very long once

it'll still be good, just differentI use US-05 in a lot of my beers, and they're normally very
Posted in thread: Wheat beer dropped clear in bottle after 1 week? on 08-16-2013 at 11:58 PM
I just bottled a batch of hoppy wheat beer I made last week. It was a Cooper's Wheat beer kit
that I doctored by adding some hop additions and some dried orange and lemon peel (the kind
like they sell...
Posted in thread: First time muntons gold IPA to augment or not? on 08-09-2013 at 06:12 PM
The resulting temp was about 12.5 degrees C, so I have put the wart in my fermentation chamber
(on a 30W heat pad) and are waiting for the temp to come up to 9.5 degrees C before I pitch the
