My first was in March of 1998.  415 more since then.

Well, you and I have a lot in common, except for the 407 batches in between me using a Mr. Beer kit around the same time you started, then doing nothing until last month.  8)

Another vote for Logmein.  I also use it to control my laptop from my iPad and it meets my 2 main criteria for software....easy and effective.

I hate how their app is free for iPad but $29.99 for Android...still looking for a free Android solution...

Ok, cool. I have one that's tall enough to start up the twine.

I have a dumb question...they say to wrap the hops clockwise around the twine, would that be clockwise from the top looking down or the bottom looking up?

That's a great idea, especially for those with tablets.

Another choice that would be free is VNC: http://www.realvnc.com/products/android/index.html

I'll have to give this a try...

EDIT: I thought it was free, but the android version is $9.99...sorry...

Huh, interesting. I found this about Styrian Golding "is thought to be Fuggle introduced to former Yugoslavia circa 1900" ( https://www.crops.org/publications/cs/articles/44/2/411 ) My wife is from that neck of the woods. Small world...

I'll try to avoid these then. It's funny how my tastes change the more I try different styles. I'm currently favoring more malt (or less emphasis on hops).

At some point it stops tasting like a beer and starts tasting like a strong hop tea. If you mess the balance up enough that the malt is so weak then won't that effect your score?

There's a local Kolsch style (Intuition Jon Boat) that is at 20 IBU and that seems to be just bitter enough to be called bitter.

Can someone tell me which hop varieties give a more floral aroma and not a grapefruit flavor?

Ingredients / Minty hop taste?
« on: March 16, 2012, 05:35:02 PM »
I haven't been able to pinpoint which type it is, but in some beers I taste hops as if they were minty. I really hate it. Anyone have a clue as to which variety might taste minty or is it just my taste buds?

Are there many other dwarf varieties?  I'm planting mine in pots but I have a feeling my HOA nazis will complain about the line I'm running up to my balcony.

I'm patiently awaiting the Beersmith android app. It's supposed to use "cloud" storage for recipe sharing and what-not. No clue as to how far he is in development though.

hmmmmm.   That might just make me give up the iPhone......

It will be available for that as well: http://www.beersmith.com/forum/index.php/topic,3562.msg26326.html#msg26326

No clue as to how far he is in development though.

It's being alpha tested now.

That's good to hear!
