Equipment and Software / Re: deck planter box for hop rhizome
« on: January 17, 2013, 12:44:56 PM »
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 http://titaniumbrewing.com/?page_id=163. 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 http://titaniumbrewing.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/20120502-090149.jpg. 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 29, 2012, 05:35:20 PM »
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.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: CO2 bottle in the fridge?
« on: September 24, 2012, 02:24:28 PM »
If you mix corn starch and rubbing alcohol and wipe it on a fridge that is not plugged in, then turn the fridge on, the heat generated by internal coils will theoretically warm faster than areas without coils. This may show you where warm coils are located because the alcohol will evaporate faster above the coils leaving a dry line of corn starch.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Building a kegerator
« on: September 18, 2012, 12:41:43 PM »
The one thing I would recommend is using Perlick faucets. Seems the cheaper ones tend to stick. Well worth the extra couple bucks. I bought this, http://www.williamsbrewing.com/PERLICK-FORWARD-SEAL-FAUCET-WITH-SHANK-P1476.aspx. All I had to do was drill hole in door for the shank, then remove the picnic tap from the hose, and clap hose to nipple. Done and done. I also got another temp controller for my kegerator. http://titaniumbrewing.com/?p=207
