Rusty, it's not how you make it, it's the final product that counts. If you enjoy the beer you make, that's all that matters,

A few years ago I did two gallons using a standard kitchen blender. Not the way to go, even for such a small amount.

I just let the wild yeast do it's thing, and it was some good drinking.

I've been using walnut oil on my paddles for years and it really does a good job.

Nice. I've made my own canoe paddles so I have a pretty good idea about how much work goes into those things.

Good news, because my hop harvest kind of sucked this year.

Nice! Congrats!

Not bad. Good to know.

Wow. Those are very cool! Is plating expensive?

Wow. I'm at 30 gallons so far. I need to drink more.

I have used a food dehydrator. It works great and is fast. Last year I made a large screen, put the hops on and left it in the van for a week. A hot car is bad of dogs and kids, but works great for hops. Smelled real good in there for a few days.

Also, sometimes the best way to rescue a batch is dump it and start over.

I've only had to dump two batches in 7 yrs. Last one was a lager. I pulled it out of the fridge for a diacetyl  rest. Let it sit on the counter for a week while I forgot about it and then we had a 3 day heat wave at the end of may. By the time I got to it, it tasted pretty bad.
