Dig the crowns when they are dormant, but you need to make sure the ground is thawed too. Mark them so you'll remember where they are.
And don't move the whole thing, just hack off a good chunk, I wouldn't go with anything bigger than 12" in any direction.
If the person giving is hopeing to get rid of the hops by letting you take them they have a nasty suprise coming next spring. Hops are almost as hard as horseradish to really get rid of. just one little piece of rhyzome left will regenerate into the same of monster after a few years.
The only beer I've had that i would describe as truly vile is Brau Brothers Scotch Ale. Had it at a tasting event a few summers ago. It was the only beer I had to spit out that day. They must have used 50% peated malt in the stuff. It tasted like an ashtray!
There are certainly beers I don't care for, but not many for which I would say "never again." I generally avoid fruit beers or beers with other flavor additives like herbs and spices, the exception being certain Belgian styles.
Had my police scanner on yester early afternoon. Around 1:30 p.m. I hear "Yeah, I think I'm gonna need another engine up here. The wind is pretty strong from the north, I don't think I can contain it myself." About 3 hours later, I walk on the front lawn an see this!!
Holly was literally standing in our front yard when she took this pic. As the crow flies, it's about a mile from the house. Turns out, a couple kids were playing with matches and toilet paper. I've been able to count three C-130's dropping fire retardent, and about six small planes dropping water. There is one giant helicopter with a tank and snorkle dropping water, and a smaller one with a bucket. Nurmerous trucks, etc... I can't imagine the cost involved. So far, about 1200 acres have burned, and they have it 25% contained. That I know of, one house has been lost.
It's kind of a sick thing, but it has been very cool to watch. I mean, this is happening in my front yard, making drips right in front of my eyes! The planes are in a flight path right over my house! I have all the fire departments, the Beareau of Land Management, and the Pocatello airport all programmed in my scanner, so I can hear it all go down in real time.
The girlfriend wants me to get a smaller keg setup, and some thing that is a little more aesthetic than a full sized fridge. I'd like to be able to run two cornie kegs at once, and maybe have some room for lagering. Any ideas?
P.S. Check out my blog at http://nickfilipow.blogspot.com/
Oh yeah, you got that right. ROLL TIDE. I usually have all day Sunday to recover from my celebration or beating my head with an empty Chimay bottle.Although my favorite sport to watch is football, sadly I don't usually drink during it b/c it's on Sunday and I have to work the next day.
just watch real football, it's played on Saturdays
Anything English well work well.
There is a market for them if he'll sell to you in bulk for homebrew use.
It is really drying up. Jon at Mountain got them from me, and I checked with my source a couple of weeks ago (he works at the Pepsi distributor in Olympia) and he can't get any, they're gone. I sold the last ones I wanted to a few weeks ago.
Yeah, I went to Mountain for it. Figured it'd end up being cheaper paying the tax locally instead of paying shipping from one of the online places, since the actual unit price was pretty much identical. And I got to pick out exactly which keg I wanted!
I'm probably just going to stick with the one keg for now—partly for financial reasons and partly because I'm a very low-volume brewer at the moment. I do want to pick up at least one or two more eventually, but I don't see that happening until next summer at the earliest.That said, I wouldn't mind meeting up on Friday anyway, especially since you won't be at the meeting. Right now my schedule's open pretty much any time before 4:00, but given the nature of my summer job that could change by this time tomorrow.
The other thing you are not considering with the pumped air option is that there is a not a viable way to adjust how much air is being pumped. So while you leave the pump on the wort continues to bubble and bubble and bubble and you end up witha huge mess of foam on your hand. You need to leave the pump running for at least 20 minutes so it becomes quite a PITA.
With an o2 tank you can adjust the flow (you only want the slightest trickle) and 2-4 minutes is all you will even need at most, as opposed to 20-40 minutes with an aquarium pump.
Also, while it make cost a small chunk of change up frontm I recommend visiting you local welding shop and looking to how much it would cost you to lease or buy a tank. One tank will last you years and the regulator will work better than the thing that works on the disposable tanks.
