I'm brewing an extra bitter APA.  I think I'll call it "'If Tech Talk Ends I Quit' Pale Ale."  Too long?

Really Denny, a rye APA - you?!


Yeah, imagine that!  ;)  But hey, man, it's an APA, not an IPA (I realized I didn't have a beer in the house under 7.8%) and I upped the rye from the 18% that I use in rye IPA to 40%ish for this one.

Will do, Tom!  I used some organic Chinooks from a new hop farm that's just a couple miles down the road from me.

They must be last year's crop, right?  It seems too early to be from this year, everything here is delayed but maybe the weather hasn't been so bad for you down there.  I've got burrs, but no cones yet.

Yeah, they're from last year.  The guy (Ploughmonday.com) is growing Chinook, Cascade, Magnum and Fuggle.  This is (I think) his 3rd year of operation.

Wow, only two acres.  Do you know them, or have any idea what their oast looks like?

Yeah, I've been to visit him a couple times.  Run by one guy (Norm Vidoni) with some occasional help from hi Dad as I understand.  I don't know what they did for drying last year.  He just got an SBA loan to build a dryer.  He's got a partner who runs a brewpub in PDX, but I can't recall the guy's name.  Seems Norm's big goal is to open an organic microbrewery here using the hops he grows.  Nice guy, big plans, a lot of work ahead of him.
