    Has anyone grown Neomexicana hops?

    Agreed. I've been looking as well with no luck. I'd be more than willing to pay someone for shipping via PayPal to mail me a rhizome.

    Lambic Bottling

    Hello all! I brewed a kit from Northern Brewer, Dawson's Kriek, back in September of 2012. I'm wanting to bottle it up now in regular crown cap bottles. My question is, do I need to add fresh yeast, or will the residual yeast/bugs from the 3278 Lambic blend be sufficient? Thanks Russ Sent...

    Plastic Primary leaking air, question

    Sanitize the carboy, sanitize the siphoning equipment, and you'll be fine. The increases risk of infection is only an increase if you have poor practices.

    Brew Ideas

    Thanks for the ideas. I think I'm leaning towards a barley wine maybe. Although I didn't even think about the long term lagering option. I do have a dedicated chest freezer with a controller... And the possibilities multiply..... Thanks Russ

    Brew Ideas

    I'm looking for some long-term beer ideas. I'm going to be leaving for Afghanistan right after Christmas and won't be home until late next summer.

    Remote Hop Growing

    Planting a fall rhizome, would that be a bad idea in Nebraska where the temp starts to drop rapidly about Novemberish?

    Remote Hop Growing

    So, for years I've wanted to grow hops. Due to deployments/work/life I have put it off year after year. This past year the wife and I moved into a home that is perfectly set up for hop growing, without a big trellis system (that the wife feared.) Our deck's top rail sits about 15~ feet off...

    Hefeweizen/Dunkelweizen - Length of time in primary

    If you're sure about your gravity, there is no reason to wait any longer. That being said, taste it. If you don't like the taste, or you feel it tastes too yeasty, let it sit a little longer as suggested. This time will allow more of the suspended yeast to settle out. Use the numbers and...

    Is this doing any good?

    That's exactly what I did before I got a spare freezer. Worked like a charm.

    Is this doing any good?

    Why would you change the towel? That's where the water evaporates.
