    It is nearly impossible to identify hops varieties by their leaves. Each variety has very
    similar leaves. I've had 3 varieties growing for years and I can't tell them until they produce
    cones. Hops pl...

    My cascade looks like the top picture, don't know about the lower, none of mine have a solid
    leaf.Dang it...Bottom pic almost looks like blackberry bush lolThat would suck...

    I ordered two Cascade hop rhizomes from a supplier and planted them (first time growing hops).
    The photos below show the bines I'm getting so far. The leaves from the two plants appear to be
    pretty di...

    I just bottled this beer 3 days ago.....and now I'm thinking it's gonna suck just based off the
    hop description. I made a 3qt starter, hopefully I don't have a yeast count issue. I did have
    concerns a...

    I am very familiar with the use of steeping grains. You wrote "1 oz Summit (FWH - add to kettle
    along with steeping grains. Total boil time is 60 minutes)" which implies that you may have
    boiled them ...

    Plenty of decent commercial beers use corn sugar with no negative effects. Particularly West
    Coast IPAs where the goal is to add gravity without adding more malt to dry out the beer. Pliny

    FWIW, I think the beer is starting to get a bit better. While I think the Summit hops did
    contribute much of the astringency in the flavor which cut through the pallet, the sort of off
    flavor is somet...

    I bought for the first time this year from Thyme Garden. Heard good reviews. Fingers crossed.

    This sounds like a stressed fermentation to me. A 1L starter for a 1.086 Target OG beer is
    small IMHO. I would have made a 3.5L starter, or even pitched half of a yeast cake from a
    previous batch. Oth...

    Looking at the description of Summit hops, maybe that's what I have an aversion towards... Per
    NB:Typical alpha: 17.0-19.0%. Super-high alpha dwarf variety grown on low trellis systems in
    the Yakima v...
