I intentionally try to get as much trub as I can. I've heard / read that it's good for the

about the hop ...

Store the hops in an air tight container in the freezer. They are fresh for about 6-9 months

sink brew. Wha...

Great thanks! I'm thinking I'll end up reusing them about 2-3 weeks after opening the original

I've individually primed bottles before with 1/2 tsp of sugar, and they turned out just fine.
I've heard it's not recommended because it's hard to be consistent, and I don't make it a
