We really like Portland, Hood River, Bend Oregon. Throw in Eugene if you have time.
I want to get back to the Bay area. Plenty of options.

Denver is fine. Plenty of breweries in LoDo and RiNo
 It is speed out if you think Boulder, Longmont, Ft. Collins are Denver.

San Diego County is fine, but bigger than most think, you can spend a lot of time driving around

Asheville is good, food and scenery are tops.

Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo have much to offer.

ABQ and NM in general is a terrible destination. Stay away. Don't ruin it for me, please. ;-)

I’m not familiar with that area in New Mexico but my favorite New Mexican breweries are La Cumbre, Marble, and Bosque. I think you can find La Cumbre and Marble almost anywhere, I just found an anni bottle from La Cumbre in Arizona that was really good.
Happy hunting. Anything with green Chile should be good to try.

Those are my favorites too. I found the Santa Fe Brewing beers to be much better when in SF last spring.

Bosque has a taproom in Las Cruces I see from web searches.

There are some local places down south that I will just have to try.

I've been known to have Green Chile every meal of the day.

I did look after I posted the question. US Goldings have a fairly stable acreage. Either it was a low yield year for some reason, or the use by a larger brewery went up, both of those are conjecture.

I will say that I don't be see whole cone hops in some of the Homebrew shops much these days. I like them for various reasons.

I have been buying hops from the 2018 harvest and have found everything I need except Goldings. I brew a lot of English styles and Golding is my main go to for these styles. Has anyone else noticed this, are Goldings being fazed out? I bought all the other hops I need at Hops Direct but no Goldings there or at Yakima or Farmhouse. What's up?
You are talking of US Goldings?

Heading off to New Mexico in November. Checking out Las Cruces and Silver City for the first time. Any recommendations for beer or food?

We will go to the Gila Cliff Dwelling National Monument. Last year we saw White Sands. Stopped at the Owl Bar in San Antonio for a great Green Chile burger, might stop at the Buckhorn across the street this time.

I saw Jeff Alworths blog on this earlier. A little sad.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Viking Malt Null-LOX Varieties

I was thinking the same thing but the LODO guys says no: Null-lox Malts from Morebeer

OK, worth asking the question to see.

All Grain Brewing / Viking Malt Null-LOX Varieties
« on: October 16, 2018, 06:29:35 PM »
Viking Malt has malts with Null (no) LOX, which is the staling compound that LODO brewing is concerned with.

Anyone tried any of these? The specific one is the Pilsner malt, listed in the PDF. It looks like More Beer carries Viking, I will have to see if they have that specific one. They say it tastes like a Pils malt.

I say don't wash. For next year find a nursery or someplace similar that sells lady bugs. I think you can buy them online too. Lady bugs will go after the aphids.

we bought a bunch of lady bugs one year, they ate the aphids. then they got hungry and flew off looking for food. the aphids came back, the ladybugs didn't.

2099, no worries here!

One can hope that plant breeding can help with drought resistant crops, and crops that can be grown in new areas.

Germany had a poor harvest of wheat and barley this year. It was really dry there in August. Some parts had not had rain since the beginning of April. They are to start having some rain this week.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Pump or Gravity Stand?

I like gravity.  It's always running, always silent.

The price is nice, too.

I haven't figured out how to run it uphill.

Kidding aside, I use pumps to avoid lifting heavy things as much as possible

The club pressing will be at the end of the month. The orchard says it is a good year for apples.

Maybe it is time to install Tapatalk. Brewbama, Thanks for the tutorial, it seems easy.

If there is a club in your area, see if you can get an experienced brewer to taste it and give recommendations.

Sorry to see that you have to give up the hobby, but some things are more important.
