    HELP! something is attacking my Columbus

    Pics are from this morning - they were not like this yesterday. Columbus, 1st year. Did not find any bugs....but clearly something started chewing and pooping on my plants (there are holes in several of the main leaves not shown) And I am not sure why the more mature hops are turning...

    oh. the. joy. Popcorn Butter....

    Thought I made a rad IPA (Amarillo Simcoe blend) Extract recipe...got FG, dry hopped and bottled 7 days later (used WLP001 yeast). Tasted PHENOMENAL right before bottling. I was a happy camper. Wait a week to taste a 'green' beer. Carbonation is a little low...but tastes/smells like...

    Collecting/Washing Yeast

    OK - this might be an obvious question. I am going to collect yeast from a recent batch of IPA (WLP001) - pretty straightforward....should be no issues. I want to collect some yeast (Wyeast 3944) from a batch of Belgian Wit....but I am currently fermenting a few gallons of Apple Juice on...

    What did i do to my dipa!!!!!

    To begin...I am a noob. Long story short I added 8oz of Malt Extract to my wort instead of 3lbs (there was confusion in the instructions and the missing Malt Extract from the 'kit'). Fermentation was active withing 24 hours...yay :ban: After 6 days I transferred to the secondary and dry...
