It's a fine...

It's still a bit yeasty, and flat, but I think it'll be a solid beer. 1.047 dropped to 1.007 for 5% ABV, but...

Round 2!

Went back this morning hoping I could get all the Columbus.

Have you guys tried dry hopping with fresh hops? I attempted to do that last year and it was a mistake - I left them in too long, and it came out with a very strong vegetal flavor and aroma. Wound...

Once I had picked my fill, I brought them home to dry them. Yesterday I mostly picked from the right hand side, which meant I got predominantly Cascades. I think there's also some Centennial mixed...

I know it's early July, but I was able to pick over 11oz of hops yesterday. Oklahoma weather, man. Oklahoma weather.

So, I've brewed two beers using this yeast - off the same cake.

The first one was a fairly standard Flanders Red base (per Mad Fermentationist).

I pitched the smackpack, no starter. This was...
