I hope someone is working on Malt, just to round out the collection.  ;)

My Cascade already has a couple inches of growth. Magnum & Nugget are just starting to sprout.

A little vodka shouldn't be a problem. I've been using cheap vodka in my air locks for years with out issue. You should not use air lock activity as a sign of fermentation. 2 hours is not nearly enough time to determine if there is fermentation. I'd leave it for a day or two before even worrying.

If I remember correctly, all the default mash profiles are fly sparge, unless it actually says batch sparge.

I did not know that. Everything I have always read says use distilled. Thanks.

My hydrometer (apparently) lost its calibration somehow. I know I checked it a year or two ago, and it was correct, but I checked it today in 60*F water and got 1.005. Do I just subtract 5 points off any measurement? Why/how would a hydrometer lose its calibration?

You use distilled water, correct?

Equipment and Software / Re: deck planter box for hop rhizome

11" height is pretty tight. Here in LA I started 2 years ago with Cascade, Nugget & Magnum. I use wooden planter boxes that are about 4'x4'x4'. I have a small page about my first year here The cascade has now busted the wooden box and I will have to plant them in the ground, also this year I am only doing Cascade because it seem to grew best out of the 5 varities I have tried for our climate. You may also want to consider that these plants will grow rather large, if they take off and an apartment balcony may not be enough room. Here is a pic of what I did this year The small wooden box is what the Cascade is in.

You'd be surprised. I have had great luck with Cascade here in Los Angeles, 34 degrees North. My first year I harvested about 12 oz. off one plant, and last year it yielded about 2 pounds. The other varieties I have tried were failures, so this year i am going to do maybe 5 Casacde plants, with one being my 2 year old plant.

All Grain Brewing / Am I mathematically challenged?

So I've getting into the juicy part of the book, "For the Love of hops", the recipes. I came a cross a recipe that simply perplexed me, New Zealand Pale Ale (page 248). For some reason I can't really figure out the grain bill.

75% Pale malt
10% Munich
8% Caramalt
2% Pale Crystal malt

Oh well, I probably won't get my hands on any Wai-ti this year anyways.

Ingredients / Re: Mosaic Hops?
« on: December 30, 2012, 12:35:20 AM »
I did a all Mosaic IPA about 6 weeks ago, just finished the dry hopping.

 1oz FWH
 60 min. boil
 .75 @ 15
 .75 @ 10
 .75 @ 5
 .75 @ 0
 1 dry hop for 5 days.

I must say my initial tastes were amazing. I detect a distinct blueberry note and maybe even some blackberry/currant. I used whole hops from freshops, thank you Dave Wills for making this available to the homebrew community.

Ordered mine. I guess I should have looked at the expected shipping date. Oh well, I like suprises.
