Equipment and Software / Re: Hop and grain bags cleaning
« on: April 08, 2015, 08:20:32 AM »
I rinse them off inside and out really well and air-dry. Every so often I throw the bags in the clothes washer with no soap and do a short or rinse cycle.

You might try soaking in a water vinegar solution for a brief period if they get funky. Then rinse and air-dry.

Jeez. All that looks great Amanda! Wish my motivation had the same drive as yours! Well my old Marine dad always said "a body at rest tends to stay at rest..."

Well I say how would I know the difference? ::)

Man I'm seriously pissed that they are selling this ersatz crap as beer. It tastes terrible. Next time I'll know better and buy Blue Moon product...

Temperature-wise you have something that is static (water) while the beer will be dynamic during the attenuation phase. It will behave a bit differently I think.

Depending on he season and what's happening inside the freezer could kick on fairly often which is still ok. Your controller should have some short cycle avoidance feature.

Test runs are cool but the real test will be a fermentation run.

Cider, berry wine of all sorts. Corn might be hard to come by so corn whisky is probably out if it's a debilitating apocalypse. Thrown back into the neolithic in less than a generation. Beer's probably gonna be history as well. Ain't gonna be many bees left but they may make a comeback and if we're lucky honey will be available.

Stuff that grows on it's own will be your source.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What to do with post boil hops?
« on: April 07, 2015, 05:51:08 PM »
Compost or trash. Depends on whether it is whole hops and if a lot were used. More hops increases the likelihood of the compost bin and if I use grain that also gets composted.
On which occasions would you use hops and not use grain?  ;)

Yeah, spent grain here almost always gets composted.  The occasions where it doesn't it either gets turned into bread or dog treats.

Ah. I don't eschew the use of malt extract.

Yeah I'm planning on planting it on the side where my neighbors put their invasive plants. ;D

I was thinking perhaps you actually forgot to add the sugar. ;) Or added something else at bottling time like starsan.

I use hop bags so it's easy to dump hops out.

You just dig them (new canes) up and transplant then. Great I don't want them taking up much space but more strategically placed.

There is a spot that I might convince the neighbors to contribute in the future where it could be a big patch.

Magnum is my favorite bittering hop. I will have to try this Galena you speak of.

You can do it for a time-period. Duvel does this for instance.
