1st Wet Dry Hop of 2011
« on: July 06, 2011, 01:41:26 PM »
1st wet dry hop of some homebrew for this season, in Endicott, NY. These are Fuggles, not very aromatic. The Cascades have a few weeks to go before they're ready.



Mod Edit - We'll see if this works - please note you have to link directly to the jpg, not the image with all the html cruft. Also, facebook is a little wonky for sharing pics since it wants people to be logged into facebook

Hmmm, image didn't work.  It was a pair of 2 liter bottles, 2/3 full of Rye Pale Ale, with a couple fist fulls of fresh hops in both.

Pic works for me. I'm jealous. My first year plants, as expected, are hopless. (not hopeless  ;))

I'm sure your hops will come in fine, next year.  Raising them is great fun, picking and drying is significant work, but well worth it. 

Mr. Moderator, please let me know how to get images embedded, correctly.  I don't understand the "location."  Do I need to have a repository somewhere, on the web?  Thanks!

Hey, I did the edit. The problem with your original link was that it went off to a facebook HTML page with all of their cruft around your image. The board software won't display that. You need to give it the url to the image itself (e.g. it ends in .jpg, .png or .gif) and put that between the img brackets

For instance, this is a photo of a stack of kegs that I prepared pre-NHC.


Here's what the link looks like when I write it in. (note the .jpg ending)
Code: [Select]

What you had was more like this
Code: [Select]
[IMG]http://imgur.com/vUd6i[/IMG]

Which doesn't display, but could work as a link

Awesome, I like the beer to hops ratio.

I've raised them before, with minimal success, at my old house. Hoping these ones do a little better

Wow, Dave, yours are way ahead of mine!  The cold wet weather is just ending here and everything is behind this year.

This. I've gotten more growth in the garden in the last week of warm weather than in the last month or two

Thanks, Drew, I signed up for imgur, it looks like a great site for storing images, to be used on-line.  How's this?



BTW, thanks for all your hard work before and at NHC in San Diego, it was awesome, see you in Seattle!

My first year hops are spindly little vines, about 3 feet long.  I'm not sure if hops like our climate but I'm hoping to see a flower next year...maybe.   Beer looks awesome and I'm jealous.

I only have one that even looks like a vine.  Dammit.
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

I love in the midst of prime hop growing country and the first year I got 1 cone from my plant.  10 years later I get 5-7 lb. after drying.
