  • I suck at homebrewing. My main problems are:rnrn1.) I drink too much during brewing to follow the recipe.rnrn2.) I don't spend enough time cleaning. rnrnI got into home brewing when living in the dorms. Our Housefellow (RA) strictly adhered to the rule that we couldn't BRING beer into the dorms. But he didn't consider brewing it within the building to be a violation of the rules.

    I just have a lot more confidence in a product that Blichmann designed vs a RIMS that I would
    have otherwise built on my own.Ditto.Maybe they can pull everything in the old thread up until

    my biggest concern is that they would somehow get a hold of the tree and keep on growing. They
    can hit 30 feet high. Then most of the good cones would be 20 to 30 feet up the tree and you
    may break yo...

    We have people come out to get bines for weddings all the time. Usually, the groomsmen come out
    the day before and pick them as sort of a pre-bachelor party. (Funny aside, despite our urging

    I love how this thread went from "how do I protect my hops" to "recipes for rabbit" to "how I
    shot my neighbor's dog". I'm not complaining, just laughing.On the general subject, I once had
    a pair of b...

    Go with the screen. What's your rush? They will turn out better and you won't have the smell of
    mildly roasted hops hanging in your kitchen until somewhere between Halloween and Thanksgiving.

    Most of the time when you hear of someone's dog getting sick, it was after they ate all the
    spent grains with the hops. I don't think the residue would hurt. Just air out the room for a
    day after he's...

    Don't rent, buy. Or if you rent, sign a 99 year lease. Most of the cost is up front for a plant
    that lives 25 to 50 years. If you don't sign a lease correctly, someone could let you spend the
    money to...
