Back Yard Lager
« on: August 28, 2013, 12:58:13 PM »
So finished this last night, pitched this morning at 11C. Had to use my whopping 4oz of wet hops freshly picked yesterday. Mostly cascade but I did get a few Willamette as well. My planting location is generally wet all the time so I'm going to move those plants when I get a new place to put them...
