I guess I never realized "kosher" applied to plants.  What does it take for hops to be kosher?

Caldera IPA

Have you had that one before?  Caldera makes some seriously good beers.

For me, it depends on why I'm drinking...if I really want to evaluate a beer, I go from less assertive to more assertive.  If I'm drinking strictly for enjoyment, it doesn't matter what order they're in....it's whatever seems best at the moment.

Doryman's Dark is one of my faves.  That's what I'm planning on starting with today!

Sunday is Old Stoner Day!  It's gonna be the 10th batch in 12 years.  We'll do 10 gal. of OS, then partigyle another 12 gal. batch of something.

Speaking of brewpubs....(OK, I'm going off on a tangent)....

Today is our 30th anniversary.  My wife suggested we take a drive to the coast to go here...

http://pelicanbrewery.com/

Several times it's been voted the most beautiful brewpub location in the US.  Great food and multiple award winning bers don't hurt, either!

Once you do it, you'll see that it's a LOT easier than it may sound now.

Nice Denny. Could you let us know when that happens this fall.

It actually happens several times, depending on variety and source.

Oh, I'll come clean sometime soon. You guys are all gonna think I'm crazy when I do, though. Especially given the advice I gave in this thread.  ::)

Keith, I don't think any of us need any more convincing....;)

Unless one knows the hop farmer, it's hard to do that,

Around here, it's not as hard as in other places.  I call Dave Wills at Freshops, find out when he's picking up hops from the farmers, and order then!

I also need to bag my whole hops as not to clog up in my system, but pellet hops can be boiled loose. I prefer whole hops over pellet hops. Not too sure if there is any significant difference between the two, but I believe whole hops are less oxidized due to processing of pellets.

If you have absolutely guaranteed fresh whole hops, I agree.  But in general I find pellets store better and stay fresher longer.  I always buy continental hops as pellets.

There was a guy here in OR who opened a brewery after hitting the lottery.  In a few years, he was broke....

For the record, I turn 58 on Valentine's Day, so I'm a bit sensitive!  ;)  Today, I feel like 78!

Some friends are starting up a brewery here.  I asked them if they were buying used equipment and they said the price differential between new and used was so small that they were buying new.  That way they could also get a system tailored to their needs.  They've spent the last 9 months with investors and lawyers and hope to be running in another 3-4 months.  Apparently, it's been a very expensive process.
