    What's wrong with the S shaped ones? Filled to the proper height they should not suck liquid
    when you lower the temp. They should just bubble in the other direction.Are you talking about
    these ?https:...

    Any nurseries sell plants? Getting them from seeds could take forever...Update: Looks like

    1 ounce of warrior, depending on the rest of the recipe, must be very harsh. I've seen them at
    15-17% AAUs, which would be enough to feel like it's stripping enamel off of my teeth in some
    cases, FWH ...

    I do recycle my hops as I call it when dry hopping. I typically just freeze it to use as a

    Given the amounts of Gypsum and CaCl added to that water volume, the levels of SO4 and Cl

    I would mash this at higher temp next time (154-156). I made one similar with this. I used 2
    Row. One dry hopping. I'd move most of the hops on flame out and do whirlpool. V2 soon!
