    Wit Yeast Discussion

    I agree. I think if you can brew a Hoegaarden clone, do a "Pepsi Challenge" with a seasoned Hoegaarden drinker who won't notice much difference between the two, then you are a pretty damn good homebrewer. Very hard beer to nail down IMO.

    hops growing during drought conditions.

    Your plant is probably done for. I'd dig up you rhizome and cut a piece off, if it's bone dry it's cooked. You can also take a piece out and put it in a jar of water in a sunny area of your house, if it starts budding then it's ok. I have a 3 year old Mt. Hood here in Linden, NJ and...

    mash tun

    +1 BIAB. You could even forego the bag and use a colander or strainer of some sort.

    Anyone used a bucket heater?

    You can easily make your own heatstick with probably less money but more wattage. Here's mine. I still use it for heating mash temps. Can take 5 gallons to a slight boil in about 30 min from 70F.

    2 Beers you never heard of

    A 12% lager is definitely out of the box. You gotta love the bravado though.

    What are you drinking now?

    Fantastic. My favorite new beer. Slightly malty, crisp but not too crisp, very subtle esters with creamed corn undertones. True to style and a perfect representation of the style.

    Not a wimp just a) not that into high abv beers b) I haven't been drinking a lot lately so my tolerance is nil and 12% would knock me off my ass c) I mainly bought this as novelty item. I will eventually sample it though I doubt it will even be drinkable. Pulling off a 12% abv beer...

    At 12% abv I'm afraid to try.

    Mediocre is putting it kindly. If you want a lesson in skunked oxygenated beer this would be a good place to start. There's a reason why most breweries shy away from green and, most especially, plastic bottles. After taking a sip I would welcome a Bud Light and for me that's saying a lot...

    Organic vs. chemical fertilizer for hops

    Great plants bigljd and bobbrews. Both look awesome. I'm a big fan of organic gardening and just don't like putting man-made manufactured chemicals on plants container or otherwise. I'm not saying you can't have the same yield with organics as chemicals but to me there's just a certain...

    No Chill In Kettle - Drain through ball valve or Rack?

    Everything post boil is an infection risk. Throw some sanitizer in a sprayer bottle and spray the ball valve if you wanna go that route. If you have a pickup tube in the kettle, it's off to the side, and you whirlpooled well then you should be ok as far as extra trub goes. Having said that...
