I bet you could grow decent hops there (it would just require lots of water for irrigation).
There are some decent Texas wines made with wine grapes grown in Texas. Considering that the
prime hop grow...
Posted in thread: why use rotating racking arm? on 05-23-2013 at 04:00 PM
I have a rotating racking arm on my conical, and I've never needed to rotate it. I just leave
it in the downward position and it racks fine. The only reason I could think to rotate it might
