For those who haven't seen it on another board, Keith is just about to get his brewery open and make some beer!  Way to go, man!  Maybe post some pics over here?

General Homebrew Discussion / Maybe I could change my mind...
« on: July 23, 2010, 11:22:23 AM »
I've always said that there's no way I'd want to be a commercial brewer, but maybe I could be persuaded.  My good friend and old homebrew buddy, Nate Sampson, has been the brewer at Eugene City Brewery (our Rogue local) for about a year now.  He called me the other day to ask what brands of extract I'd recommend.  Naturally, I asked him if he was going back to extract brewing!  He informed me that he'd just gotten a call from Morimoto (!) who has a licensing deal with Rogue.  Turns out Morimoto is opening a brewery in one of his restaurants in CA and can only use extract due to some local law.   Nate's going down there to help set up the brewery and do a few test batches to come up with recipes.  THAT'S the kind of thing that makes me think maybe being a commercial brewer wouldn't be so bad after all!

What gets me is the tone of astonishment that women can be beer tasters!

Yep, my Local Neighborhood Hop Farm!  Last week, I visited Ploughmonday, a small scale organic hop farm about 3 miles from my house.  He's growing Chinook, Cascade, Fuggles, and Magnum, all completely organic.  It's pretty much a one man operation, with a few occasional hired workers.  Looks like a HUGE amount of effort, but fortunately he's a young guy.  He's in the process of constructing a dryer for this fall's crop.  I hope that he'll do internet sales....he really wants to sell directly to homebrewers and I'm trying to convince him that's the way to go.  I'll keep everyone informed of his progress and post a few pics this week sometime.  It's really cool to have a source of organic hops so near by, but if I had ever considered having a hop farm, seeing what it takes has definitely made me change my mind!

General Homebrew Discussion / Attention OR homebrewers!
« on: May 10, 2010, 11:39:44 AM »
I have just discovered that in 2007 the law allowing homebrewing in OR was amended to not allow transporting homebrew to events, club meetings, or competitions.  There is a effort beginning to get this changed, but since the OR legislature only meets every other year it may take a while.  If you live in OR and would like to be involved, please PM me.
