I use the exact pump for my wort chiller. Great deal for what I paid for it, maybe $10 on Amazon

Bought some of the Horton Ridge stuff from Everwood about a month ago, but good to see Noble is bringing it in now.

Equipment / Corny Keg Washer

Finally made a corny keg washer:



It uses a cheap 15W submersible pond pump... Ran it for about 12 hours to wash 4 kegs, worked great!

Mine are about 6 or 8 feet. I've been negligent about fertilizer and weeding but they aren't doing too bad. The centennial are doing much better this year so far.

The latest Noble Grape newsletter indicates that they have Horton Ridge malt (Nova Scotia) here in their Fredericton store.

I can confirm, I was in store yesterday and they have a decent selection.

My 2 centennial are probably at about 5-6ft so far, Golding about 5ft, and the Fuggles, which I didn't expect to survive are at about 3-4ft.

Mine go up a line to a 4X4 post at about a 45 degree angle, 15-17 ft of line, generally go to the top, grow slightly more and then start to fill out.

Some of mine are to the roof and half way back down to the ground already...
I don't do much with mine I just let them go. I've tried running lines horizontally. It works great but its a pain to wrap them around the lines everyday. I've seen it done quite successfully @jamie_savoie has had some pretty awesome crops doing it that way.
Mine seem to grow to the roof fall back down then grow back up again. It's probably not the best for yield but I get enough to use so I don't really care.

That's helpful... I was thinking about making another runner down to the ground level, but was reading that I'd have to train it downwards, daily. That really seems like a pain, so I may just use your method!
