Welcome to the site. I'm the only New Mexico member of Raise Your Pints, I totally support all your efforts to make all beer and homebrew accessible to everybody in the state.

I like when people pay for my ingredients to brew them a beer. I enjoy brewing so much I brew more than I can drink anyways... so whenever I am 'funded' to brew it's a bonus brew day for me. lolI always have a "student" these days. They pay for half the ingredients and do all the labor, and in return they get half the beer(5 gallons). But when people ask me to brew something I tell them they can spend the day brewing with me, and I brew sober, so they lose interest fast.
I think it does. Not usually all that great just-made but after a week or so it mellows and loses a great deal of any harshness.Thanks Euge, I liked it right away, and if I have a stuffy nose I can just rub some into my mustache and instantly clear my sinuses.
I want to speed up the defrosting without harming my bines. I thought about putting down some plastic (either black or clear) but I'm afraid I'll cook the crowns. Maybe I'll just count on the black soil to heat up on its own.Homebrewing has taught me one very valuable lesson over the years: don't rush things, be patient.
I wish I had that problem. For the first time in about 5 years I had enough to harvest and brew 2 batches with. And I just cut down last years bines on Sunday because the new ones are peeking out of the dirt.Damn, I better go look at mine. I haven't even cut down the bines from last year.
I haven't cut the bines down from last year's crop as well. I also didn't have time to havest the hop cones.
I harvested maybe 1/4-1/3 of of mine and then said screw it. For the last 8 years, I've processed lbs. more than I've been able to use. I decided to skip the useless effort this year.
