    Ultimate Hop Cutting Propagation Q & (Hopefully) A

    I stand corrected then. I didn't think cuttings above ground would root. But, I still think it would be a lot easier to just dig up a root. A shovel width hole 6 inches deep about a foot or so from the base will give you plenty of rhizome to start with.

    Anyone ever call in sick just to brew?

    If you're self employed, who do you call to call in sick? I retired so I can stay home and brew.

    Ultimate Hop Cutting Propagation Q & (Hopefully) A

    I don't think hop bines will root. You'd be better off planting rhyzomes. As for questions 5 and 6, as much sunlight as you can give it, and they're thirsty plants, but don't like to swim. Make sure you have well drained soil, but keep it moist. I water mine pretty much daily, I have a soaker...

    The Dysfunctional-Palooza Obnoxious Masshole BS Thread

    40 dwell worked better for me. But then again, I’m a Mopar guy.

    Cannabis infusion

    Ok, next time I try it, I’ll decarb it. Thanks. Should I soak it alcohol before adding it? I’ve heard both ways on the subject of THC and CBD being soluble in alcohol. And, I disagree with you about the flavors and aromas being unpleasant. To each their own.

    Cannabis infusion

    I've tried making this a couple times. I soaked the cannabis in EverClear, and added it, including the cannabis, a few days before bottling. I don't know if there was any THC or CBD in the beer, but it had the aroma and flavor.

    Who’s A Skinhead?

    This is a couple years ago, I don't have a recent selfie. I've been chrome for over 10 years now. Think of all the money you'll save on shampoo.

    Moving to automating my brew day

    Well, if you're hard plumbing, then you don't need valves on the outflow of the vessels. But if you're planning on swapping the hoses, you will. As far as the T, a 3 way valve would be better. IMO

    Moving to automating my brew day

    I was studying your updated schematic. Are you going to hard plumb everything? If not, you should have valves at all outflow points in the three vessels. And, I'm confused about DP. You have a valve on the outlet side, but there's two lines to the inlet. Are you going to have a T on inlet side...

    Moving to automating my brew day

    Are you recirculating back to the mash tun? One simple solution is to start recirculation about 10 minutes before the end of the boil. That would ensure that everything is sanitized.

    I'm not sure what you mean.

    Moving to automating my brew day

    I went and looked at your picture a little closer. The only valves you'll need to move are the ones on the pumps. The rest are all good. When you run the pump with no liquid in it, you can burn them out. Having the valve on the outlet side, you'll be able to shut the valve with the pump running...

    Moving to automating my brew day

    Looking at your pumps in the picture, are the valves on the inlet side of the pump? They should be on the outlet side. You shouldn't run the pumps dry. Oh, and be careful with the wood structure. Make sure you have some kind of fire suppression (fire extinguisher, or even a charged garden...

    Updating my fermentation setup, edumacate me plz

    I ferment my 10 gallon batches in 15.5 gallon sanke kegs. I also have an upright freezer. I wouldn't be able to lift the full fermenter into a chest freezer, my back won't let me. One important piece of advice if you decide to get an upright freezer: find one where the coolant doesn't run...

    The Dysfunctional-Palooza Obnoxious Masshole BS Thread

    I wonder if the coffee porter is like a Dunkin "regular". I believe that's milk and two sugars. Whenever I buy a coffee from Dunkin, I have to make sure they hear me say "black". I've had many occasions where I said I want a medium black coffee, only to receive one with milk and sugar. Yuck!

    Pumpkin - nope Coffee porter - ok Jelly donut and Boston kreme- I'd try them, but they don't sound appetizing to me.
