I'll admit I had some money burning a hole in my pocket, so I bought a Randall from Home Brew Stuff 10
While there are a handful of Randall threads here, I did not find one addressing tips, hacks and best practices for using them. So here's the place to do that.

I will admit, that I have not used mine yet, but just received 1 lb. of Centennial and 1 lb. of Azacca hole cone hops. So my plan is to give it a try this weekend with a 5.5% ABV IPA I have on tap that has lost some of its hop goodness (it is still delicious nonetheless).

I finally tested out my hop Randall with Centennial hops and was not impressed. The beer just tasted grassy, not hoppy. Given my expectations of a really bright, hoppy aroma and flavor, I was sorely disappointed.
