Kegging and Bottling / Re: Foaming problems.

Could also be a bit of hop debris somewhere or dirty taps causing nucleation sites resulting in foamy pours

That's normal. Not sure why it needs to stay in secondary for months

What style of beer is it? Unless its some kind of specialty beer that needs extended time, package that sucker up!

Well who knew, checked my plants in the snow yesterday, soil temp was a chilly 41 and both my cascades and centennials are showing 1-2" sprouts!

All Grain Brewing / Re: 55% Efficiency after Batch Sparge

All great advice so far, the only add I have is to ensure your hydrometer or refractometer are properly calibrated as well

Justin, you might be better off speaking to actual hop farm growers, not breweries.

Hops grow 16-20' so vertical space limitations are something to consider. Weather conditions play a big role in hop productions so this is certainly intriguing, at least I think so:)

Best Bitter 3
3 gallons 1048 OG-1018 SG
94% Golden Promise
5% Medium Crystal
1% Pale Chocolate
25 IBU Willamette @ 60
7 IBU Willamette @ 10
Amber Balanced water
Mangrove Jacks Burton Union yeast



Very nice beer.  Really like the bitterness up front. Caramel with a very slight nuttiness. Not as dry as style description. But not really sweet either. I had a bad day mash temp wise. Came in pretty high. Stirred down to 155F and let it ride hence the low attenuation. But overall I am going to enjoy drinking this keg.
Not only looks but sounds like a nice bitter

Spent Almost the entire day doing brewery stuff, cleaned the kegerator, cleaned lines and taps, cleaned kegs , swapped kegs, bottled up 5 gals of an ale for a friend as a house warming gift and kegged the other half for me:) having a well deserved Pils and enjoying some cold sunshine!

If you can get to Willie May's  scotch house, I believe in the 9th Parrish, GO! Best damn fried chicken you will ever eat but get there early- lunch, they don't do dinner cause they run outta food;)
