Mine grow really well. Production of cones is another story.
Why didn't the CL mill work out?
Does one need a certain amount of powered drill to run a Barley Crusher? I have a drill, never used it for my mill, but not sure it's powerful enough.
This is the one I have: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002TXNX0/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i00
CL mill didn't work out because the seller contacted me just before I was to meet him and said that he had someone offering $145. Considering he originally agreed to sell it to me for $65, I told him to go ahead and sell it at $145. Good for him, but more than I wanted to pay for what he had. It's not an urgent piece of equipment, but something I'll be adding to my set up in the near future.
The drill question is a good one. I've got a couple of chord less drills, my Ryobi 18V One+ being the most powerful of the bunch. I hope one of them will be able to run my mill when I get one.
It's not wort anymore. It's beer.
It was only 'fermenting' for 12 hours at 52F. I'll take a gravity reading. Do you think it's not usable at this point? Just toss it like Tom said?
isn't that exciting? I planted 12 rhyzomes in the last month and of the first 5 I planted 4 had come up but I was starting to worry about number 5, last night I noticed a little shoot.
so 5 centenial, growing well. 6 cascade, in, up still looking for a real burst of growth on those though. and 1 sterling of which there is no sign it's only been 2 weeks though so I am crossing my fingers still (makes it really hard to type!)
It's SO exciting! That is a lot of hops, where do you have them all planted? We just have the Willamette which is rocketing up, and a cascade that hasn't shown itself yet.
Your wort did not get up to 216F under any kind of normal brewing conditions
A ~20°P wort at sea level would boil at 216°F. Not that that's necessarily what happened, but it wouldn't be abnormal.
I would also calibrate your thermometer. Your wort did not get up to 216F under any kind of normal brewing conditions, let alone get there and not be visibly boiling.
I'd be more concerned with ordering a "pint" as advertised and being served less. Might not be a big deal to some - but its best not to deceive your consumers.
I called them out on the glass sizes once. I had a stout in a British pint glass (with the bulb out near the top). I told the woman behind the bar it was a 12 oz glass.
She filled one with water and poured it into one of the other standard "pint" glasses to prove it was a pint. I told her all she did was prove that all of their glasses were 12 ounces.
She did not like me much.
First time cooking seitan tonight. Chourizo seitan with black bean salsa over mojo rice. Came out incredible. Meals like these make me think I could actually be OK if I was a vegetarian.
Here's more progress on the fermentation chamber. Got the foam all welded into place. Just need to buy some hinges so I can mount the doors!
Here it is rolled under the workbench where it will stay!
