    I usually plant mine in late april/early may. Sometimes I start them in early april indoors in
    a 5 gallon bucket I keep in a very sunny window. I then transfer them outside in late may when
    its warm e...

    Hi All. I'm still fairly new to homebrewing, and brand new to growing hops. I just received a
    couple Cascade rhizomes in the mail, and realizing now that I have no idea where to start. I'm
    a little ov...

    Deployed a swamp cooler, and the temp is dropping...now at 73 degrees. The frothy bubbling
    through the cap has subsided. Hoping to get the bucket temp down to 65ish...would that be good?

    77 degrees is too warm.Swamp Cooler - A large bucket or storage container filled with 6-8
    inches of water. Set your fermenter in there and rotate frozen bottles of water to control your
    temperature. I...

    what kind of beer is it? the higher temps will produce off-flavors, which can be moderated by
    extended aging. you generally don't want to be fermenting in the 70s. you could look into the

    Now that we are in the hot month of July, the basement is about as warm as it gets. Wondering
    if it's too warm. We brewed on Tuesday (7/3), and this morning (7/5) the ambient temp in the
    basement is 7...

  • Posted in thread: 3 weeks or longer for bottling time? on 06-08-2012 at 06:56 PM
    Good idea to bottle a few 12oz as tasters, and save the 22's for when you know it's really
    ready and good. We'll do that for our next batch. This time we just did one b/c when we were
    getting near the...

  • Posted in thread: Refractometer before/after fermenting? on 06-08-2012 at 06:00 PM
    Has anyone used the BREWfractomter listed on Ebay? It's more expensive ($65), but sounds more
    specifically geared for brewing.I'd be fine with still having to do calcuations if needed, just
    wondering ...
