To my understanding it's a pretty all-or-nothing situation with oils and head retention. Kinda like beer-clean glassware vs glassware with even the tiniest amount of residual soap/detergent left...

1. How does this affect the flavour of the nuts?
2. Just how long would it take for this to actually be...

I did a pecan porter awhile back that turned out quite nicely. Really need to get around to making it again.

I took 200g of pecan halves, and crushed them up a bit. Not too fine, just a bit of...

Given that Simcoe is generally way up there on people's lists of piney hops along with Chinook, yes, I think I will be leaving it. Yes, Columbus is a more pungent and dank (my favourite descriptor...

For pine? Non-sense. I'll never understand when people go on and on about Chinook just being "earthy" and "spicy". I know for a fact I'm not the only brewer in the world who thinks the two big things...

They also don't have many of the associated costs of retail; I'm assuming their profit margins aren't exactly awful. Also keep in mind they sell single pound orders to homebrewers for a hell of a lot...

This. Probably going to hop-burst a wheat ale with these to see what they can do. The high AA is going to be a bit of a pain to work around though.

Erm, I don't think cascades qualify as an under-rated hop. I mean, how many breweries have a flagship pale ale in the SNPA vein (ie: all cascade, all the time)?

I do agree a lot of people probably...
