    New 100 Rhizome hop farm

    Wow, that looks amazing! How much did it cost to make the trellising system that you have there? I am going to definitely do something similar.

    Problems with cascaded!

    Been fighting this all summer. Te leaves on my hops keep turning yellow and then dying! I'm not sure what's going on. I have fertilized with manure and I use miracle grow.

    Do my hops have a disease?

    Yeah I do, but maybe I should add a few more? It has one large one in the middle. That was how it came from the Home Depot. I also am using a potting mix that drains pretty well, but like I said it poured buckets of rain down for two days straight to where I finally had to pull it out if the rain.

    American Strong Ale Black Death ( Irish Death Clone)

    I'm not sure why the cara pils, it was part of the grain bill that iron horse brewery sent me. All the grains and hops are what the brewery actually uses to make Irish death. The amounts of each are subject to be determined by the brewer. I arranged them from greatest to least in the order that...

    American Amber Ale Zach & Jack's African Amber

    Combine that with what this guys said on the AHA website and you can kind of piece the puzzle together: "I talked to a guy I know who used to work there. They definitely do not use any orange peel or zest or anything in the amber, or any of their beers for that matter. He has seen the recipe...
