And it is super expensive for barley (I am guessing it is not malted!), You can get a 25 kg sack from Brewers coop for around $70.
The recipe calls for 8 oz of malt extract, 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of barley, no hops. Thats some watery beer - if you can call it that!

I was recently explaining the beer making process to a friend of a friend, at a party. I immediately got the impression this kid was a know-it-all type. I go through the whole process from start to finish... Ingredients, steeping, boil, extract vs. AG, primary, secondary, what dry hopping is, priming, bottling, aging... the works.

2 parts to the hilarity: Apparently he's like a friggen brewmaster now, and tells people basically exactly what I told him. Never made a batch in his life, but tells people he does at parties. I'm sure that's why he was full of questions. This was weeks later my buddy told me they were out and he was using "i make beer" to pickup chicks. Whatever... there was pu$sy on the line, so i guess I get it. But right after i explained the process, he proceeds to tell me all about "some beer he once heard of, but couldn't remember the name of" that used "wet-hopping". I had to Google it, because I had never heard of it. I'm the type to research something before I tell someone they're wrong. Apparently wet hopping involves taking dried hops, soaking it in water, then adding it to the beer. lulz.

I'm pretty sure wet hopped beers refers to using hops that have never been dried. Right now you can preorder them from rebel Brewer since they apparently run out quickly and are only available at certain times during the year

Yes I know this (and only recently educated myself when he mentioned it). I had never heard of it, and he was just bullsh!tting. So I googled.

It is not, however, soaking dried hops in water, then adding it to a final product at bottling. Hence the hilarity when Mr. Knowitall explained this to me.

Oh I get it, he told you wet hopping was the same as dry hopping but you "wet" the hops first. Pretty funny.
I have also heard the process of using undried fresh hops as "using green hops".

i love the mr. knowitall types. one kid a while back had just gotten his bartender certificate, so this of course made him an expert in all things alcoholic. he insisted a lime was crucial for corona because it counteracted the germs that were in the urine that was used to ferment it
