    Hops flowering in winter

    Nah wanting the mother plant gone, but I think you've answered my question about whether the rhizomes are viable even though it hasn't died back yet, so cheers

    Hops flowering in winter

    So I'm the reason I'm wanting to move it, is that it went ballistic and took over a big area - probably going to pot it for next season to keep it more contained. Do you reckon the rhizomes would be viable if I dug it up now?

    Hops flowering in winter

    So I had a bumper crop of hops earlier in the year, but the bines haven't died back at all and are actually still flowering. Sounds unusual, had anyone had this happen? I'm wanting to dig them up but hesitant to do it until it dies! https://i.imgur.com/rHMjyc3.jpg

    Stuck Brew? Have tried re-pitching...

    ^^ Cheers, will do. I haven't actively aerated any of my brews, and this could be a reason that I'm getting this recurring issue. FWIW, I've just bottled it off and will see how it goes. Into tapking bottles, one for force carbing, and a couple for natural carbing.

    Stuck Brew? Have tried re-pitching...

    Actually also, my brewing friend recommended I give a 'low carb enzyme' a try. He explained it as being able to break down some of the complex sugars into fermentable simple sugars. Any thoughts on this?

    Stuck Brew? Have tried re-pitching...

    Does active fermenting yeast mean a different type (ie commercial not from the can?), or just that its been rehydrated and is 'active' (bubbling etc) again? Also, I'm going to do an identical brew once I'm done with this one using 'DANSTAR MUNICH Wheat Yeast', with the idea to test how well it...

    Stuck Brew? Have tried re-pitching...

    By this, do you mean not enough yeast going in? Totally correct me if I am wrong (likely), but if there was not enough yeast and therefore still stuff to ferment out, wouldn't there be some activity when I put the second pack in?
