Hop Union brought in quite a few Nelson Sauvin hops last year and I can only imagine they will going forward. You just need to get a retailer to order them for you. A word to local clubs here in SD...

Most likely over carbonated. I have done it several times.
Forcing it quickly makes it fairly easy to overdo it. Once it is dissolved, it is surprisingly difficult to get it out. You can't just...

They are the exact same thing. Different people have historically used the different names. Caramel/ Crystal malt can add some caramel flavor. Also, very long boils at high heat can add a "kettle...
