    Black IPA Hops

    Hello, I'm adjusting my black IPA recipe. I went with Perle for bittering and Provoak last time around for flavour and aroma. At first the Provoak USA came out nicely but then just became overwhelmed by the Perle with IBUs at over 70. So, I'm going to change things around, mix it up quite a lot...

    Second try at hops

    Howdy, It's been a long time since I've posted and this year I've decided to give hops another try in central Texas. This time, it was 4 Cascade rhizomes, but planted in a large deep water trough using the same setup for the twine for the hop bines to climb. So far so good. One has reached...
