Posted in thread: Free hops in Roxboro, NC on 04-16-2013 at 08:58 PM
I'm not sure it's worth the drive but can be knocked off and the roots trimmed to whatever size
Posted in thread: Free hops in Roxboro, NC on 04-13-2013 at 09:38 PM
I have done some clearing in the garden and have five adult bines free for the taking (home
brew samples are always appreciated). I have two Cascade, one Magnum and two Nugget. I dug
these up from the...

I wouldn't be surprised if the second half of coil is doing nothing more than restricting your
flow rate. The water is probably pretty close to your wort temp by the time it gets half way
through so y...
Posted in thread: CO2 Regulator Advice - need to purchase a new one on 02-04-2011 at 04:46 PM
The guys description of the regulators does not make much sense "2 guage regulator grey@
100psi, red regulator@ 160psi". My tanks usually read about 800 psi until almost gone so you'd
certainly need a...
Posted in thread: 15# tank ran empty, now what? on 02-04-2011 at 02:08 PM
Keep an eye on the 1st stage gauge. Mine do not seem to be linear. Mine tend to stay high like
600-800psi for most of the tank and then drop over the course of a couple kegs to zero. So,
when you see ...

enough energy stored up for it to survive sending out growth above and below ground. Roots
larger than the d...
Posted in thread: which hops to grow? on 01-11-2011 at 10:50 PM
I am in a similar but different situation. I'm not too far (NC near Durham) and have grown
Cascade, Sterling, Northern Brewer, Magnum and Nugget. In the end the Cascade and Nugget are
the only two to ...
Posted in thread: 1,000 watt heater too hot in fridge? on 12-17-2010 at 05:39 PM
I use a heating pad to keep my fermentation fridge warm. It has provided enough heat for my
full size fridge in a garage that gets down into the low-mid 40's. Just make sure you get the
older style th...
Posted in thread: How Do Kegs Work on 12-15-2010 at 07:55 PM
Some people even shorten the pick-up tube so they pick up less sediment from the bottom of the
keg. I leave mine full length. Once the keg goes into the fridge I don't touch it. With a new
keg there m...

There is nothing too difficult about growing hops. You may search through this part of the
forum to find out what varieties grow best in your area. Here in NC I can't stop Cascade and
Nugget from grow...
