Anyone who thinks a printed out recipe is worth something hasn't brewed enough to know they are wrong.

Regarding the quantity, would a mason jar be overkill in a 5 gallon batch?I had an offer to have a "mason jar of yeast" given to me by a local brewery. Sounds fun, but not sure how I'd store it, use it, etc. Any thoughts are welcomed!
When I do that, it's for immediate use.
I'm slightly sore: hauled in a yard of rich sandy garden soil and topped off 3 rickety beds. A full bed-load that took 6 trips in the wheelbarrow. Picked up one of those giant blue 2-wheeled barrows at lowes on sale- $109 last spring. Would have been 10 loads in a regular wheelbarrow.Why bother with romas? The ones in the store taste pretty good. I like to focus tomato planting on good slicing tomatoes you can eat raw. Those are the kinds that just don't make it to the grocery store.
Have my onion sets and carrot seeds. Hopefully I can get some romas in the ground in the next couple weeks.
I've used them before in secondary. I gave them 2 weeks and was at FG by that time.
Hm, I haven't heard of that, so I'm not totally sure. I did just a real quick Google search and wasn't able to find anything about a hop quarantine this year, but I'm not sure how reliable that is.
It's set up to protect the three primary hop growing states for the most part as hops account for millions of dollars to those states economies. Unfortunately, there have been a few instances where 'dirty' planting stock was sent from PNW to folks establishing new farms in the east in recent years. http://usahops.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=news&pageID=2
Hops direct from Yakima area sells rhizomes so can ship to Washington st.
Oh wow, that farm looks really awesome. I might have to make a trip out there and check out their farm!
Have you purchased from them before?
Yep, that's what I'm thinking. The main challenge I need to really learn about is the draining wastewater without gravity. I probably need to pump it up to a drain pipe that goes to the septic system.I'm getting a bunch of woodworking equipment which will mean that I have to re-think my cellar. My girlfriend offered to give up her old art studio which is a finished room about 10X16. She has a better one with natural light now and was using it mainly to store supplies. So that will be the brewery and a section of my cellar currently storing brewing supplies and ingredients will be the shop.With that woodworking equipment you should be able to build a table or stand for that SS sink. DIY plumbing with plastic (cpvc) is easy and cheap. Plumbers = $$$.
My biggest challenge is running water. I have a big two bay stainless steel sink from a commercial kitchen I would love to install. Has anyone done this in a cellar themselves? I'm wondering if this would cost hundreds or into the thousands to have a plumber do. Does anyone know if this is a doable DIY? I don't know plumbing but I'm pretty handy and I understand pex makes it easier. I know it will require a pump to drain the sink. I would love to get a zymatic but maybe just a cobbled together electric system which would require an exhaust system which I don't know the cost of.
