Somehow I knew you were going to ask that! For the life of my I can't find the link, doesn't even look like they advertise it on the homebrewing site anymore... I'm sure someone else will have it handy, but I keep my email pretty clean and I don't have any emails from them right now, if no one comes up with it, I'll respond on Monday.
Earlier this year one of mine shot up and went about 2-3' past the top of the trellis... started hanging over and growing back down... I went up there and ran another line that it could grow horizontally on so it would be supported... in training it on that one, it broke! snapped right off, so I trimmed it back to about an inch above one of the lateral junctions. It survived and never grew taller but it did send out a ton of lateral side shoots like crazy and I think I ended up with more hops due to that. I ended up doing this will all 5 of my plants once they reached the top and they pretty much all did the same thing.
The flavoring used for coffee can and do get used...be careful how much you add though... I've personally found Stirling brand to be the best one. Also with any brand you pick, look around, they have multiple chocolate flavors...
How does it taste? That to me is the best indicator if you have an infection or not. One of the things I learned when I was bottling was to add the cooled corn sugar mixture to the bottling bucket, then rack your brew on top of it so it 'stirs' it up then take a sanitized spoon and gently stir it up again just to make sure its incorported in there good enough. These days since I bottle so little, I use the carb tabs now.
I've used cocoa powder in the past, I mixed it with corn sugar and some water to make a syrup then added it during the boil. Gotta say I wasn't that impressed with the flavor... I agree with above, the cacao nibs in secondary give the best chocolate flavor.
But the hardest part for me is I'm a carnivore, I love meat! Reducing it has been difficult, but to counter that lately I've add a ton more veges to my meals, trying to eat more seafood too. Today I just made some hummus, never been a big fan of it, but decided, hey, I need a healthier snack... turned out pretty good with the flatbread I got. next time I'll change it up a bit and try a different version of it.
I had a '53 Willys in HS, loved that thing... could out four wheel anyone around at the time.. sigh... I would love to have the jeep version (like in MASH)... be a great hunting vehicle. or a CJ5 or 7...
