    Hop Madness

    OK, so I realize this is mostly for homebrewers from the NW, but I know there are people who come from all over. Who is hitting Hop Madness this year? Brewing with fresh hops out of Rogue's hop yard is too much to pass up this Labor Day weekend. Usually I hit The Little Woody in Bend that...

    A serious debt

    A friend of mine in Australia has been trying to get her BF to brew, so I ask the innocent question about what he has for a bottle opener. So, yesterday a surprise package arrives. (ok, that's a bad pun) Had to brew up an 8% stout that's going to cellar until she can visit. Roo Sack...
