    Tried a Hot Rod Rye IPA clone.

    bottled it about a week ago, so not sure yet. but the pre-bottle tasting says it should be good.
    will you rep me?

    I'm gonna try home brewing this year, nothing like fresh beer. My buddy cracked a rye PA from his batch thats still bottle fermenting on friday night to try, soooo yummy...

    Just ordered a pound of El Dorado and Citra for a DIPA recipe I am putting together.
    Had a single hop El Dorado IPA this past weekend, and fell in love with it.

    8.5 SRM, 8-8.5% ABV, 100+ IBU (116 calculated).
    Lots of Golden Promise, lots of late addition hops, and two dry-hop schedules.

    This thread should be merged with the other home brew thread since they are basically the same thing.... Admins? Moderators?

    My local home-brew store has Citra for the moment, so that wasn't hard.
    Sourcing the El Dorado was more difficult though, other than placing a bulk order as an actual brewery, only 10% of every years crop is allocated for home-brew use/distribution.
    I was able to find one place out in MO that had a little left.

    Both.
    Obviously some varietals are easier to get in pellet form, and you can use less pellet than whole leaf by weight, which can be nice in certain instances.
    I don't really prefer one over the other normally.
    I do love using the ones I grow in some sort of annual wet-hopped brew, it's just fun cramming that much whole hop cone into the kettle

    I also use both - but mostly whole.
    I prefer whole because my system is made to use whole - easier to clean.
    I grow more hops than I can use, so, unless there is some specific need I generally make recipes that work with what I grow.

    I've put up 40 gallons this month. Should last me for a wife.

    pale, based off Dales Pale
    Rodeo Monkey, 140 IBU cascadia dark ale
    Espresso stout
    SN, Celebration clone.

    That's going to do me for a while. I'll probably do another couple batches right before summer starts and I start traveling again.

    Can't post up pictures yet, but I just finished drinking off my first batch of homebrew - citrus spiced wheat beer. It was basically a Blue Moon clone and tasted great! Very similair to Blue Moon itself but had that extra sweet taste of satisfaction added! 3 weeks after initial bottling, however, it started losing its flavor and started to taste more just like a plain wheat beer, which is still fine.

    JFryauff and debaucherous - That's awesome that you grow your own hops! How hard is this to do at home?

    Stupid easy. They grow like weeds.
    Cascade will grow well in most climates and generally produces well.

    I'm lazy...

    ...so I want to start kegging my homebrews. I already have a kegerator that fits a 15gal barrel so I am set there. Now I just need to find a couple of soda kegs and research how to get it all setup etc. The dude at a local shop laughed at me when I asked if he had any used ones so I guess I'll start my internet hunt. My Blind Pig clone I brewed in December is ready for bottling (2 weeks in primary and 3 weeks in secondary after dry hopping) so I guess I'll bottle it rather than waiting. I hate bottling. /rant

    First of all...kegging will change your life
    It's hard to bottle at all anymore, even if I feel a style will be better off bottle conditioned (Belgians, farmhouse, etc.), kegging is just so wonderfully easy.

    Second of all...

    Is this because they sell out too quickly, or because they are turning up their noses at used kegs?

    Good luck with your kegging endeavor!
