I'd get rid of simple sugars for a stout (or at least limit the amount). That should help it be less dry next time. Belgian yeast can be pretty attenuative without the aid of simple sugar. To get...

It's in good garden soil and I have fish emulsion that I use periodically. I figured the harvest will suck. Call me cynical but given its current condition I highly doubt it'll be 10 ft in a month....

Yeah but these are all ready 10 ft high. Will the breakage affect my yield if I don't cut them down?

Wheat and rye IPA

Anyone here ever try an IPA with a combination of rye and wheat in replacement of the 2 row? Like a 50/50 split. Results?
