Fri. is looking especially good.  They're trying to get some of the flavor of the social scene in Yakima into the program.  Tacos and Sports Center are the 2 biggest things I look forward to other than the hops.  And I guarantee you that Ralph should not be missed. He's like a living encyclopedia of hops in the PNW.  He made a lot of the history he'll be talking about.

And if you're interested in how cryo hops are made, check out the Wed. Session

I listened to one of the dry hop sessions last week and they spoke quite a bit about cryo hops. I have yet to try them but the conversation peeked my interest (again).

Awesome.  This is the one that goes with the beer samples you could order for $25?

I think so....I don't know a lot about it.  They just asked us to join and said simple are on the way.  When we did the hop sensory last week we discussed how the perceptions you get from smelling hops may or may not change when they get into beer.  This is the answer to that

Denny, I was thinking about your comments about tasting hop flavor in finished beer vs the raw aromatics, and testing new hops with dry hopping.  I know we’ve all heard the old “throw a few hop pellets in a coors light” trick, but it seemed impractical to me unless I was going to keep the beer warm after that for 5-7 days.  With the success you’ve had dry hopping for 48 hours at refrigerator temps, do you think this is actually a viable method?  Might want to buy bottles and recap them, but other than having a higher carbonation, it shouldn’t be much different than doing a whole batch.

I would guess it's not only viable, but likely would work better than a longer time at higher temps.

And a reminder that if you missed any sessions, they were recorded and available to watch later.  I intend to revisit the one on survivables....totally fascinating.
