Hey,So this is my first year growing hops and I don't have a ton so I want to use them all in a
wet hop ipa. I just got back from vacation and found that my hops are starting to show a good
amount of ...

There's no way deer could get to it, but I've seen rabbits running around. I'm going to put up
chicken wire tomorrow and hope it's not birds. Still fuming about the ****head that did this.

I planted a Cascade and a Centennial rhizome 2 weeks ago. The Centennial was growing well with
3 shoots about 4 inches long (Cascade has yet to emerge). I just found the Centennial rhizome
laying on t...

Oh I misunderstood your phrasing. Thanks for all the explanation on this difficult topic of
water chemistry. I understand a lot more now. In fact, I just did a taste test with the
filtered water, wate...

Ah I see, thank you. Are there 10" filters available that work in the same manner as the Brita
filter? How would I identify these?The Brita also has particulate and activated carbon
filtration so it t...

Right, well my 'Chlorides' count from my local water report is 19.5 mg/l and the 'Free Residual
Chlorine' is 0.52 mg/l. To my understanding these are quite low. Could these levels still give
my beer a...

No but I'll have one this weekend. The drinking water out of the tap tastes fine though. Does
brewing accentuate mineral/chemical flavors present in the water?

Right, a hose containing stagnant warm water for a period of time makes sense, but this is a
brand new 15ft hose only used indoors from a brand new laundry sink. I've only filled my kettle
with it usi...
Posted in thread: Light beers (SRM < 10ish) with strange off-flavor on 04-16-2014 at 02:32 AM
Yea it just seems weird because the water is running through the hose at maybe 55F and making
contact with the walls for all of 3 seconds tops (it's a 15ft hose). Is that really enough to
give the wat...
