Yeah, these plants are miracles. I'm surprised that they are still alive. Right now only the
one plant has burs. And only about 12-15. But hey, any hops the first year is a plus as I
Posted in thread: Well, all is not lost. on 07-13-2015 at 11:22 PM
We had a heck of a wet year so far here in Oklahoma. From March to May we had a little over 40"
of rain. I though for sure the four rhizomes I planted would die. Sure enough one did. Two

Count me in! That IPA sounds like just the thing for mowing the lawn.

I have the same issue with the single story house, but I didn't think horizontal would work. Do

that little to...
Posted in thread: Home grown grapes...maybe they'll work... on 05-09-2015 at 02:10 AM
The house I recently moved into has some grape vines in the back yard. Not sure what variety
they are, but they're beginning to grow. I guess in several months I'll know if they'll be

I always seem to grab the wrong fittings when I go to the hardware store. And to make it worse,
it closes at 5pm when I get off work. This typically means I have to wait until Saturday when
it stays o...
Posted in thread: How cheaply could you build a RIMS MLT? on 04-15-2015 at 02:25 AM
A Rims tank could be built fairly cheap IF you're willing to compromise, and improvise. I'm
personally building a HLT at the moment. I only need to bring enough water to temp to do a 5gal
batch, I'll ...
