    Hello Fellow Washingtonians!!

    Hey everyone! I have a question on yakima valley hops. i'm planning on doing a Manny's clone soon. Mostly because I love that beer and i've recently moved out of state due to my wife's job. Since that beer is a PNW beer, I was considering the hops and here's my question. Do hops, say...

    Efficiency explained...?

    So I've brewed several batches, all extract and all from kits from my local HB store. They all turned out wonderful. I'm planning now on taking the next step and am going to start all grain by doing BIAB brewing for several batches (until I get comfortable with it and until I can afford a...
