General Homebrew Discussion / Hopstand Flame out hops - IBU contributions
« on: January 19, 2011, 08:20:33 PM »
Those of you that have experimented with hopstand - adding flame out hops and NOT chilling for a while....
any words of wisdom or experiences on how to roughly calculate IBU contributions?

I suppose time and temp are big variables, but what does it taste like to YOU?

Thanks.

Man, you ain't kidding about the prices at the Tipsy superstore...

That place has got to be the gaudy-est most over built liquor store I have ever been in,
no wonder the prices are so high, they need to pay for the building! 
Who need to watch ESPN on multiple big flat screens and have piped in music outside whilst shopping for liquor? ::)

I won't be back there, but I did splurge for some Hop Head Red and a couple bottles of Old Crustacean.

Thanks again for the tips, next time I am over I can recall this thread,
and Vert, if I ever plan to head a bit north I will give you a shout.

Cheers eastslopers! ;)

Thanks very much!

Tom, not sure what I am looking for,
never really know until I see it.  Just looking for something new and fresh.
Mostly stuff with lotsahops.

Looks like Tipsys is on the way,
Guess I won't mind it being a little overpriced..you know how tourists are. ::)

Weather looks nasty but I better git home.

Cheers.

Can you hook me up with your favorite beer store?

I am looking to haul some stash back over the hill,
and was pretty disappointed with the selection at the Applejack.

Close to Lakewood is a bonus.

Thanks in advance. 8)

One cold black winter of a Colorado night
it snowed up on Red Mountain Pass

We warned everybody that the slide was runnin'
and that 550 was a mess

But out of the Plow Shed south of town
came a Blade with a flashing blue light

We told that boy whatevah you do
beware of the Riverside slide....

Oskar Blues set the trend.  Seems everyone in Colorado is doing it now.

I like to crush, and it makes the recycle bin way smaller!



Yup, still waiting on the Maharaja in an Fosters style oil can! 8)

That is tempting, hydraulics just sitting out front just waiting to be used.

I have one of those, I can't even use a wheelbarrow anymore :-\

If you can get a straight shot to the back yard, and not turn...they don't hurt too bad,
I say head off across that septic to the back yard and use it up!

Nice green BTW.

Don't forget about local hops in your cans.

Do tell. You know a local hop farmer?

The new hop growing region of Colorado is over the hill to the north.

One can see hop poles being erected every year,
on a small local scale.

Areas with acres in production include the North Fork of the Gunnison
or closer yet,
the Uncompahgre Valley country, more appropriately named for your purposes: San Juan Hop Farms

The last few years,
local breweries come to the farm and assistant brewers get sticky fingers harvesting. 8)

Silverton, small place.  Could ride your one speed cruiser from one end to the other
in about 12 minutes.

Have fun.

Did I mention Moon Boots?  Yup, you'll need them. :D

Wow, now this is a gig.  Not many get a ticket into Silver town.

Indiana? 

Many might consider a pay cut,
for a little of this:











I kid you not, this is exactly how it looks around there right about now,
come morning sun.


I recommend long johns, a good axe,  leather tele boots, and a reliable old four wheel drive. ;D
You better get here soon, and start stacking for winter.


Don't forget about local hops in your cans.

Cheers.

All about the budget my man,  ;)

OK, skip the diesel.

How about this for Pocatello?




Just giving you a hard time for that ghey mobile,
but you might look pretty darn cool
stuffed in that thing wearing your pirate suit. :D

That is all for me ....there ain't no more....frost got the plants,

 :o Gawd dang Whomin!

Couple weeks til frost here yet,
but fat old heirloom 'maters are just now turning color. ::)

This is the biggest thing in my garden,
a cabbage a foot across....they don't mind a little frost.

and a bucket of 2010 Centennials.  Cheers.
