    2015 Hop Plantations, Show Us Your Hop Garden!

    I have a dog...I emailed my vet to ask about the hazards. They said that the processed hop is poisonous i.e. pellets etc. but the hop plant itself will be fine and your dog should show no interest. But to be safe, I'll keep an eye out when flowering.

    Two pots, brew in a bag without the bag. My first attempt

    This is what I have. Still have to use a bag, but i just lift the smaller pot out and put an oven shelf under it and wait for it to drain. Perfect Edit: Mine is a 40 litre pot though.

    Square fermentor idea/experiment.

    I've had issues fermenting in cubes before. Not enough oxygen maybe

    Copper chiller

    Thanks. Yeah just found that thread. I'll give the hose an ice bath, see if that works

    Brew day variations

    Yeah looking forward to this beer, the whole brew day went smooth. Hit all targets etc. I used p.o.r. in a wheat beer a few weeks ago. Nice drop

    Copper chiller

    I have a copper chiller coil that I obviously use to cool wort down quickly. I've found that I can get the temp down from 100ish to 60 really fast, with out flushing to much water through is. From 60 to 40or30 takes ages. Any suggestions to speed this up a little. I'm just using hose water...

    Brew day variations

    Ekg is common for bittering in apa's. Hallertaur and Vienna shouldn't be there though
