    Mixed Hop Storage

    I buy in bulk, then vacuum seal in mason jars with my foodsaver vacuum seal attachment and store in the freezer. The hop aroma is as fresh as when they come out of the Mylar package.

    Question about Lallemand Munich Classic (do you always get intense banana?)

    A less touristy festival in Munich is the Strong Bier Festival. Definitely more 'German' and a lot of fun.

    Spruce flavored hops?

    Shenanigans, Thanks for the feedback. I will try aging for a month or so and see what happens. I do usually have a high IBU ratio for my CDAs and tend to emphasize the piney notes with primarily Chinook. Cheers

    Spruce flavored hops?

    Long, Skinny Tray for 5-Tap Keezer?

    I bought a dozen of these on amazon. They were all countersunk so I just had to find the correct screw length so they wouldn't protrude from the front of my oak board. Neodymium Disc Countersunk Hole Magnets, 1.26 inch x 0.2 inch Strong Permanent Rare Earth Magnets with Screws - Pack of 12...
