    How long do whole leaf hops last?

    So I'm going to be brewing something either tomorrow or Friday, and I have some hops that I picked last year. Now before you all say, "No way man! Those hops are toast!", keep this in mind: Right after picking, I wrapped them in paper towels, and put them in a small lunchbox in the freezer...

    Harpoon Cider

    Back in October, we released a hard cider. Real simple recipe: Guy out in western mass presses locally grown chef's apples, pasteurizes the juice, ships it to us in tanker trucks, we add our house ale yeast and that's it. Now since we just had employee beer buy, I got a case of the cider...

    Did anyone catch the Homebrewing Good Eats?

    Did anyone catch the Homebrewing Good Eats on the Food Network last night? It was pretty good, but he said some stuff that was kind of odd. He said he didn't use a hydrometer, he didn't aerate the wort, only used bottled water (sort of unnecessary I thought), and also said dry hopping was when...

    Midwest Supply Bass Ale Clone ?s

    I just ordered this bass ale clone kit from Midwest Supply with a reg beginner kit w/ 5gal glass carboy. I figure that if I am going to do this whole brewing thing right I will need to graduate from Mr. Beer. Since I have the money now, now is better than ever!:rockin: :tank: Has anyone...
