Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Pros and Cons?
« on: September 19, 2013, 11:46:33 AM »
Thank you for your input, it is helpful.
To cultivate the yeast from the fermentor, I would pour the cake into several sanitized jars with some of the wort that was leftover, then put in fridge till the next time I brew. Then I pitch the yeast from that into the brew when it comes time. Am I missing anything?

Yeast and Fermentation / Pros and Cons?
« on: September 19, 2013, 10:44:35 AM »
Having a debate with the wife about the pros and cons of culturing yeast from past brews. Would like to get feedback from those that do it.

Few questions:
How time consuming is it?

Does it take up much space/supplies needed?

Anything would help

Hop Growing / Drying Hops

If I were to dry my hops in a food dehydrater, how long should I leave them in there?
Any tips would be grateful!

Where do you dry them? How long do they sit?  Have you use a food dehydrater? If so what are the differences. Is there a link on the net to get more info?

Hop Growing / harvesting hops
« on: August 04, 2013, 08:11:42 AM »
It's my first year growing hops, my plant is doing great. I went with cascade and there are buds starting to develop on the vines. Way excited. My question I have is when to harvest, and the best method to dry the hops out? Or should I wet hop a batch on beer? I live in Denver Metro area and would appreciate any advice on the topic.
