Yeah, I'm just about on hop overload, if there is such a thing. Bought a lot of new varieties in the last couple months. Probably just need to brew for awhile before I buy many more.
Been there, done that. I bought a whole bunch of new hops last year before life got in the way of brewing. I have a freezerful of hops and still crave more. I keep telling myself that hops are cheaper than women's shoes and handbags to justify to myself that it's OK.

I hear you. I usually buy up to the point that I can reasonably use them while they're still good. I'm probably past that point now. But damn, there are a few other new ones out now that I've heard good things about from brewer friends.

starts to turn into conversations like jake from state farm commercial.  your wife over hears saying " you've got mandarina, right? yeah i need a few ounces for personal consumption. no, i wont tell anyone you sold it to me, its all good"

Yeah, already deciding which taps to hit first.  Gotta have a plan. I want to buy some more soon, too.

any idea when next harvest will be released? pellets are getting hard to come by without getting gouged.

Actually, YVH is showing the 2014 in now.   If you order, let me know.  It looks like they have them now.

Now if I had to pick one spring style, maibock would be pretty high up the list, though. Haven't brewed one in forever. Last time I went to Hofbrauhaus in Newport was last year when they had their Maibock on. Won't lie, had a few liters.    ;)

I know right...good stuff. I will be collecting some 835 slurry and brewing another 5 gals of maibock so I have 10 gallons ready for our May party.

I'm looking forward to a Maibock and a Vienna Lager as well as a German Pils.

I should brew a Dort though...

my maibock is chugging along as we speak with WLP835. day 5 and down to 1.029 from 1.066

im really not a "seasonal brewing" guy. I brew anything and everything all year-just depends what I feel like.

For me, beers like anything else-wine, liquor, etc....all comes down to what I'm thirsty for, and the seasons cant stop me!

That's mostly how I brew. I probably won't do an RIS in summer or a cream ale or hefe in the winter, but past that I pretty much brew what sounds good. I do like to have a stout ready for Paddy's day, though  !

+1 holiday beers do become a priority in the schedule... but I will also brew oktoberfest all year long for example.

I have an APA that is all Mandarina that is a crowd pleaser. The wife thinks it would be excellent in an American Wheat.r

Yeah I can see so many possibilities for mandarina. I could get many a hoppy beer hating drinker to like a beer with this.

Excited to try the hull melon I just got also.
