I don't mind citrus.  Might be good.

JZ uses Horizon and Amarillo.  I have never used Horizon, does it have any character as a bittering hop?

How about you Denny, I see that Noti has a Galena addition mid way.  Is that pretty important?  Sorry if that is a rude question, sort of like asking a cook if an ingredient is really needed.....I just don't have any Galena around.

Paid $4.03/gallon for diesel today.
$100 bucks to fill er up.

Drove 150 miles up the road into ONG Land
(Oil and Gas Land)
where trucks buzz around like flies and the rate there was $ 4.43/gallon. :-\

I am impressed by the prices in Europe.  'Mericans sure are spoiled it seems,
and complain a lot. :'(

Gawd dang I love my truck.

Looking for some recommendations of your favorite combos.
I confess I may be leaning toward the hoppiest side of the style.

Those of you that know the American Brown,
what is your interpretation?

Thanks in advance. 8)

 :D, shucks.  All the good names are taken.

What?  Blue Mountain Brewery.....The brewers name is Smack...they use Cascade in the Full Nelson....

Oh....Nelson County, Virginia.    ::)

Looks like a really cool brewery.  I like the hop farm and brewery combo!

Somkeone posted the link to seven bridges already and they do have the NS for sale.

I ordered some from Brew Organic about a month ago, and they came in at 10.9%.
I see the ones they have now are at 12%.

Is it possible that they are the new 2011 crop?

I have a Full Nelson bubbling away.  Building a cake of Denny's yeast for the future.
I might go with your (birds) suggestion of adding a Simarillo blend to them for a dry hop. 

Anyone know when the new crop from the S. Hemi comes to market?

I have received multiple emails today expressing the regional grief of this tragic fire.

Mostly from historical folks who remember a classic water hole
with live music.
Perhaps your team at Silverton Brewery can step up and help fill that void.

Best wishes.  Lots of history there Sean.  It has happened before.  Rebuild.

Wow, that is sad.  Tough day for Silver Town, those old buildings can't be replaced.  
Hope your grain just got smoked.

Brewing in thongs Major? :o   Big toes;hard to do without.

I recently got some from here.

They usually have a nice selection of organic hops.  Not sure of your schedule, but the new crop should be arriving soon.

Same here, funnel and stick.  A bonus is the stick smells really good afterward.

On a side note, I am pretty sure the most heavenly smell in all of brewing
is the air being expelled from the carboy when racking onto these dryhops. 

Wish I could bottle that!

 I do my home brewing on the front deck:

That porch might be considered a terrain trap in Silverton!   :P

I too ordered a couple rhizomes from the farm, first day available.  

A Cluster b/c the hopfenundmalz infected me with his Renner speech about the classic American lager,  ;D and a Columbus b/c I am curious about how if compares to my Freshops Zeus. :-[

Got them in the mail 4 days later, fat woody things, and two rhizomes each. The farm always gives you more, and it is good to support the source!

Corky,  why not continue as planned and plant all four together?  Faster producing plant, and you won't have to dig any more holes.  In a couple years, you will have plenty of rhizomes to expand.


It's not bad but not a really great one IMHO.
It is New Mexico man!  Geez.

Little 2 row and a few packets of US-05 and you are good to go. :)

We just got one here, and I doubt they will last long according to the criteria listed by Tim and Gary.
I will try to support the local effort, but online sales with free shipping are way tempting for the bulk of my goods.

Good luck.  Moving to Jersey?  Wow. ;D

Some pretty amazing photos out there, like this one from Goran Tomasevic.
