I started out on the homebrewandbeer forum in early '07 and even though I didn't post here much back then still I feel I owe a lot to the wider brewing community given the sheer volume of newbie questions I put forth and great advice that flooded back.
In an effort to contribute something, about two weeks ago I soft-launched my new website Hopslist and now that I'm actually posting up about it, I figured both of our iconic Aussie brew forums deserve to get the heads up before the muricans and brits do.
So Hopslist is pretty simple, it's a list of hops (duh), every single one I could find in fact, their details, descriptions, analytical data and stockists (US stockists at the moment, but there will be Aus links soon). Basically I got sick of finding hop info here and there and thought it would be great to get everything in one place. My main hope is that this resource helps beginners open their eyes to the huge variety of hops out there and inspires people to think outside the box when it comes to hop choice.
It's early days, so help me fill in the blanks here and there if you can. Feedback is most welcome. Hopefully you find it useful though and if you do, please help me spread the word!
Party on Wayne.
