    Growlers don't have a good reputation for sealing properly. The swing tops may be better, but

    conditioning is best a...

    How about words from an actual professional hop farmer? recommends 3 bines for aggressive
    strains (cascade, centennial), 4 or more for less aggressive strains. Basically, you want as
