    I would not cut it off. According to publications I've read, hops produces best if allowed to
    grow upward and not horizontal. I believe the most cones are produced higher up. Can you extend
    your trell...

    I planted four different types about 3/31. I purchased them from ThymeGarden.com at a very good
    price. Being in deep south Texas salt and alkalinity is a problem so I had to prepare raised
    beds as wel...

    After brewing a few ales successfully and having rigged a small lagerator I decided brew my
    first lager. This is a 5 gal. vienna lager kit from MoreBeer. The wort temp was 65 when
    pitched. I had hydra...

    This is an interesting topic. I am new at this amazing art of brewing and try to be as
    observant as possible. I am confident that the temp. reading of a fermometer stuck directly to
    the side of a ferm...

    I ordered mine from thymegarden and they are shipping also. I cant wait to get them in the
    ground.

    really took of...
