General / Re: What's Brewing?
« Last post by pliny on October 15, 2020, 12:09:19 PM »
Looking at my records, I haven't brewed since June 6th. I still have beer, but the pipeline is dwindling. Given the forecasted weather this weekend, it looks like a perfect time to brew (for me at least). I have some Kveik that I have yet to try. I've never fermented with this stuff. I'm excited about it. I'm not exactly sure what I'm brewing yet, but I suspect it will be something hoppy and something quick to replenish the inventory before it gets critical.
Hope all is well with you all. :)

I did none of those things, lol. They evidently would benefit from some pampering next year.

Yeah it was a really dry summer this year. I put down a good thick layer of mulch, used some compost tea once buds started and watered very regularly almost evey day...

After drying, I got a measly ~4oz, mainly Cascade and a bit of Chinook. Worst harvest ever. Hopefully they are just taking a year off, lol.

I just finished packaging mine up. Didn't have a chance to weigh them but I'd guess I got a pound of centennial and two pounds of cascade. I was too slow for the hersbrucker and they were too brown on the bine for my liking (should have picked them early September).

The cones were nice and big this year, probably because of my watering setup. Lots of aphids though, so I'll have to do something about that next year.
My hersbrucker are always ready about 2 weeks before my cascades. I like it because I have the opportunity to dry and package them before the cascade is ready.

How did you fellow hop growers make out this year?
I ended up with 1lb Hersbrucker, 2lbs of cascade and about 1/2 oz lupulin powder left behind after drying. I might use the powder to dry hop a pale ale...

Did I mention hating 2020. Yes horribly difficult to find a place. Had 3 offers fall trough before one finally got accepted. People are overbidding. Buying without even setting foot in the place. Simply crazy !
