Free flowers in glass
are just too beautiful not to try it. ;)



My rafts never sink; I just pop the siphon down through and rack out from under it.

Cheers to the Ahtanum dry hop!

Pinnah, I ain' saying the name of that toad cause if I say the wrong thing, then all of a sudden
my entire world crashes down into a "Habitat" and I loose .....Edit: besides that I ain't  no Herpatologist.

 :D Fair enough.  Toad is a toad, and having habitat to get one in is good stuff.

I was just out moving water in the pasture,
kicked up a snipe
went over to where it had been and found a dismembered frog.

I did not know snipe were frog hunters?

DEEP SURGE OF MONSOONAL MOISTURE

 8), NWS Warning
Stay out of the slot canyons today!
 
I love the monsoonal flow.  Really early this year, normally not until August afternoons.
My hops are loving it.

 8)  What kind of toad do you have there?  Great Plains toad? 

That fat bastard Dingo has in the garage is some imported bull frog,
they are taking over the state and spreading fungus. 

I am partial to the leopard frogs around here.
One surprised me in the garden last week.
Cool.

I find it interesting that many of the people advocating organic gardening in other threads, are the same ones saying that they put topical flea treatments on their pets which can cause liver damage.

You don't eat your pets  ::)





I find it interesting that the strong Gordon posted up an early pic of Flea. ;D




My dogs itch occasionally, and my wife snaps one up from time to time, but we don't worry over it too much.

Yum, I have been thinking of a sorachi saison for a while now.  I love me some semony sorachi.

Tank, what you have there for yeast? and if you were a poor LHBS buyer, would you go with the 3711?

You may just have to move. ;D

Sounds dreamy, but man, the growing season in that valley will keep me out forever.
I do have a few survey plots down that way, up river and at treeline, and I will stop in to sample your product.

Might have to make a special trip in October though. ;)  Yehaw on the double.


Best of luck with your new toy. 

I saw an old arse Toyota up here today with a Colorado style bumper sticker that read
Silverton Brewery.

Hopefully you don't piss those folks off. ;D

Ingredients / Re: Male hop plant
« on: July 19, 2011, 02:22:23 PM »
I have a bisexual Zeus.  Its name is Pat.



I snip the males out...as there are not very many.

I have also had an all male Crystal.  That bastid never did get any feminine parts, so I let him have it with some Roundup.

Neither of these plants were stressed.  Both came from Freshops.  It happens.

What is a bit scary, is that I have hops in the garden coming up from seed; I also have one plant that appeared over 50m away from any other plant that I swear seems to be a cross between the male Crystal and a Chinook.

Hops are wicked prolific and have the genetic potential to take care of business themselves. :o

Yeast as a new toy.  I guess I am a little slow here. :-[

So is the Icepick the first to go?  I was pretty excited to hear AIPA is your favorite style.
Any plans to head north for a few sacks of fresh hops in August, or is a wethopped sesonal too much of a PITA.

I saw them on sale at Mountain Gear this weekend.

How are they for arch support?  That seems to be my problem at the moment.

But seriously, I don't think I would be caught dead with those things on my feet.
Although I can remember folks laughing at me when I bought my first pair of Tevas back in '88. ;)
