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!

Anybody mash on their stovetop or in the oven?  I'm in need of a photo for my NHC presentation.  If you don't mind your photo being used, please post it!

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.

Ingredients / Roasted Hop Solids
« on: April 23, 2010, 02:56:25 PM »
Yep, you read that right...a friend posted about this over on Brews and Views (, but I thought it might be interesting to get a discussion going here, too.  Basically, hop solids are what you have left when you make hop extract.  According to this article (, "It is unexpectedly been discovered that roasting hop solids results in two interesting benefits. First, the residual alpha acids in the hop solids are destroyed and the resulting hopped malt beverage is light stable. Second, roasting the hop solids further enhances the fruity/estery hop character imparted by the hop solids."  It's kinda difficult to explain, so take a gander at the article.
