 8) potatoes are for cool-climate gardeners...I just ordered some new seeds.

Since the northeast is out of stock....try some western Colorado spuds.  Ronnigers offers a wide variety with excellent stock - The Potato Garden

I do love me some fat little fingerlings. :D

I think the interesting thing about Colorado hop farms
is that they are largely supported by MillerCoors - for Colorado Native.

Still...lots of poles and wires going up again here on the Western Slope.

I had heard there is a percieved shortage with all the folks who want to start planting....

The Thyme Garden has pretty good deals on 100 bundles.  Excellent quality.

The accepted practice is to add an e to the vowel to replace the umlaut over the vowel.

I need to start practicing my German again.

It is only authentic Bavarian if it has an umlaut    ;D

You have made me want some.

Sweet. I like their Story.

I was feeling a little smug listening to you cuss the snow...high pressure sitting on us since early January created spring like conditions for 6 weeks - grass growing, flowers blooming, birds singing/setting up territories - wacko.

I planted some lettuces and spinach in my box.  two days later we finally got some winter. Epic snowstorm of 21 inches.

Now I am skiing out the front door. ???

 I have a nice big palate to paint on now.

Excited to hear about your place - there really is nothing like having some land to work.
My garden changes every year.

Cheers to seed catalog/website dreaming. 8)

BOOM! I just had it on tap! Very fresh. Very clean. Very hoppy. Very good. I wish I didn't have to leave the bar.

Dammit Frank, you are killing me here. 
I barely finished my coffee and already I am thirsty for this.  ;D

Classy Drew. 8) Your marketing techniques must be working because the book is now out of stock!!

Very elegant.
Wow, I would have seriously over-Citrasized my attempts.  Thanks.

Denny, how about you raffle off the crown for new book funds ?

Excellent idea!!  Denny, remember a few years back when Dave@Freshops raffled off some historical Cascade crowns on ebay? ;D  Big money!!

I doubt you could get enough to buy the Bus,
but maybe some gas money?

I picked up a sixer of the Xingu based on the recommendations here...WOW I thought it was terrible! 
Had a tart cidery/champange? taste to it.  Maybe I got a really old sample?  Nasty. 
The remainders are going to be hanging out in the fridge for a while until some unsuspecting swill drinker comes over.

goshman, did you happen to try Squatters Black Forest Schwarzbier?  You should be able to source it over there...curious what you think of it.  Has won some medals.

Congratulations man. 

I have a nasty taste
from a bit of hurl in the back of my mouth.

But dang,as a fan of football,
that really was an excellent Superbowl.   8)

I tend to repeat my favorite 6 or 8 of them over and over. So, really, I don't very often do anything that software would be useful for.

I think this is where I would like to be. 8)

Computers allow us to feel like we are being so precise.
Maybe we are.
Some day when I am old I hope I can just brew with gestalt and not worry too much about it.

In the meantime..I will look into beersmith.

Interesting stuff.  I added another option that I neglected initially. ???

I brew without a computer all the time, making the following allowances:


Allowances are appropriate.   :) Thanks

I am curious if there is anyone here who does not use a computer in their homebrewing process?

I was trying to convert Denny's Noti Brown recipe in the Wiki the other day and was pulling my hair out...I think I need to update my brewing program... :-[

With honey from the White House bee hives...

IMO, only good things can come from the White House having a Head Brewer. :)
