Any other brewers in the area? Im in Hawaiian paradise park.

All grain brewer and mead maker. I have 10 gallons of Amber just about finished and ready to crash and keg (38% specialty grains = yummy). 2 separate fermenters - Chico and ESB yeasts. Plus 6 gallons of 1.120 lilikoi mead in primary on Cote de blanc.

Of yeah, Im using hop extract for bittering hops and aroma oils for dry hopping. I got these from a brewer friend of mine in Guam. Have extra to share if you are local. 1-2 ppm hop oil is great for Ambers and mild pale ales and the like and 6-8 ppm is fantastic in West coast styled pale ales. I have 5 varieties! :-)

Dean on 22nd and Makuu

Amber brewed with falconers flight and santiam at 15 and zero before flame out. Hop aroma ended up weak so I'll dry hop with cascade and amarillo hop oils blended. Half ppm of each suspended in vodka carrier. Kegged 2 weeks after brewing. Love wirfloc.

Cool Dean, I'd like that. My name is Justin. I was just talking to an old friend over the weekend that I'm pretty sure lives on your dead end. Tom Higgins. Or it might be 21st. I thought it might be your neighbor cuz he said his neighbor brews.

I'm kinda swamped this week myself. I'll give you a call in a week or so.

Thanks. Justin.

Still looking for other brewers in HPP, Keaau Pahoa Hawaii. I live on 22nd dead end side of Makuu. Lately I have been playing around with Summit and Magnum hops and quickly am becoming enamored with both. Amarillo and simcoe and citra, cascade, and centennial are good hops but Summitt is my new favorite. Gets a bad rap for oniony taste and smell but I cant smell it in finished beer and neither can the other~12 people who have tried my brews featuring Summitt. I detect the faint oniony aroma 1st week in keg after 14 day ferment and crash but after that 3rd week it is gone and yummyness abounds, for me at least. Maybe Summitt varies by crop but my pound of 2015 from yakima valley hops has been excellent. I store it in the freezer of course.
