So, is "El Dorado" the name that was chosen for HBC 342 ?

I think that the bartender told me this while i was at the Ballast Point brewery drinking a cask of El Dorado dry hopped Sculpin.

Any way to ensure I'm getting fresh 2012 hops?

I want to make a whole leaf Amarillo and Simcoe IPA. I saw that all the major online stores were out of one or the other last month. Now rebelbrewer.com seems to have both in stock.

Any chance...

ISO Water Calculator That Measures In ml/L

My issue is that my water department reports ion levels in ml/L not ppm. Where can I find a calculator that accepts ion levels measured in ml/L?

Thanks.

Tasted today. It tastes GREAT! It's only mildly sour.

Based on my memory, it's a dead ringer for BFM Bon-Chien. All it needs is some oak chips.
