Hops / Re: Rhizomes
« Last post by shazapple on Yesterday at 10:35:23 AM »
My Hops are doing well this year. I have one hersbrucker I got from Roger last year that seems to be doing well. The cascade are to the top of the pole with the centennial and hersbrucker not far behind. Some burrs are starting to form so I'm going to switch to a low nitrogen fertilizer. Things seem to be progressing faster than previous years but it has been warm.

I didn't water at all last year and there was a noticeable size difference in the cones so this year I've been a bit more diligent. I also abandoned the hay ground cover and instead use a flame weeder to keep around the base free of weeds.

Same here, I hadn't brewed since April 30th.
Brewed a Belgian Bruin/Belgian Dubbel (Leffe Brune Clone) on Tuesday. Not super strong or anything, but I think if it finishes where I think, it'll be something like 5.9% ABV (instead of the suggested 6.5%ABV) which is fine with me given that I'll end up with 10 gallons of it.

Thanks Rob,

For now I am just going to start with a clean slate and go with R/O water from one of the stores. Thought it would cost me more that it is. $3 for 5 gal is not bad. Pay more for distilled.

Not sure how I could factor the water softener salts in the water even if I did have your water profile, nevermind assuming we are on the same ground water, which is likely, and even if we weren't, we are close enough that there likely wouldn't be much difference.
