Awesome, thanks! I'll get a bigger pot for it and some mulch.

As for the bottom, I just heard of people making bigger holes to let the roots go, at least with the half barrels. I'll just leave it...

Should I keep the pot closed, or put holes in the bottom to let the roots out? I assume keeping it closed would be fine, then I can move it should I end up moving in the middle of the winter.

A buddy at work just gave me a cascade plant. I'm currently in an apt that I don't plan on staying at for too much longer, maybe moving in 2 or 3 months. Is there a good way to start growing the...

It's supposed to be an IPA, would the honey impart too much sweetness?

I believe we noticed the drop from 152 to about 140ish after about 10-15 mins. We killed the flame and stirred, and it sat...

Thanks for all the feedback!

I'll reconsider the oak. Maybe put a half ounce and see what it does, or just cut it completely.

And I like the idea of moving those 30 min hops to 15/10. Will...

Zeus hops ruining the food in my fridge.

I recently picked some Zeus hops from a buddy at work, and dried them. I don't have a vacuum sealer, so I just put them into a big ziploc bag, squeezing all the air out I could. That seemed to work...

What about those of us without vacuum sealing capabilities? Just brewed today. Ended up rolling up the foil bags and putting them in freezer bags, then pushing out as much air as I could. Will this...

I'll just go infrared. How'd you mount the ceramic socket? I extended my mini fridge with 2x6, but I don't want the bulb to be too close to the door's insulation and burn/melt anything.

I was starting to think about my next batch. This will be perfect for some summertime brewing! What about at night though, if the temp gets lower?

I'm in Portland, Oregon if that helps.
