And I'm glad they picked up the 50/1450. Love it !

Yup, that's a good one. I use it on over half my ales.

Very nice. I'm looking at going electric myself.

Steve, don't let a little water stop you....

Steve- I've got to stop and have a beer or two at Bert's sometime. Any other good beers on tap?
It seems lately we go to Famous Dave's not so much for the food, but I like the beer choices (50 of them).

Jim- great description! We were up in Leavenworth earlier this summer and enjoyed a couple afternoons at the brewery. Along with Crosscut, Bootjack is one of the better IPA's in my opinion. Fun place!

Jim- I thought that's what you meant. My poor attempt at humor. You going to the fresh hop this year?

I love zucchini fried, deep fried, sliced up in my salad, and "pickled" in Asian wine vinegar, but I don't want it anywhere near my beer. Same with pumpkin, leave it for pies.

Dont know if its a craze, but Yakima has an annual festival for them.

Yakima has a pumpkin ale festival?


OK, after harvesting 10 of my 16 plants I gotta ask, how are you harvesting. I start to itch just thinking about it...

Don't know if I did this correctly but this article appeared Monday in the local paper. Thought it might stimulate some discussion....

Denny- How did you do at matching up the aromas? I didn't do very well last year...

Congratulations, Tony! I remember that you have been looking (and saving) for one of these for awhile. Just don't make the mistake I made and let the wife store her stuff in your brew shed.

I've used 2007 a couple times fermenting at 54* both times. Two weeks should do it but it'll be done when it's done. I let mine condition in cornies for at least a month before serving. I hopped mine with all Sterling. If you haven't picked out a hop, I recommend it. Great summer beer.

I went last year and had a good time. Had a conflict this year so won't be going. Most of the speakers were interesting. It was very hot last year especially in the hop yards, but lots of good beer and water to drink. Don't miss the Wednesday night gathering of both groups. Ran into a lot of old friends and met some new ones at that event. It was fun to tour Hop Union's facilities as I hadn't been there in over 10 years. Drank a lot of beer and smoked many a cigar in the hospitality room in those days. The room hasn't changed except for that smoking isn't allowed now. 

They ran shuttles downtown to a couple hotels in the morning and evening every half hour or so.

I have no doubt you'll enjoy it.

Nothing beer wise other than consuming a few. Barbecued ribs and pulled pork for a local winery for Spring Barrel Tasting Saturday and Sunday.

Or 60....
