The Homegrown Hops Saga

Follow my pictorial account of growing my own hops for brewing beer. Harvest should be late August or early September. Probably not in time for the infamous '4 Keg Challenge', but who knows.

I have 4 plants, two each of Cascade and Centennial

Let me know what you think. I understand that you need a Facebook account, but you should have… Continue

The Saga Continues.... (Road Trip to AZ Day 2)

It was another interesting continuation of the road trip. We ended up playing a round with Sheila at Roosevelt Park, had lunch at Kelly's brew pub, and the continued the drive to Scottsdale.

We made it through the mountains without incident in the dark. The GPS said we hit 7500 in elevation. Woo Hoo!

I won't say who was driving, but the Max Speed was Shattered

Message from Mark:… Continue

The RoadTrip to AZ

Mark Ellis had to deliver a car out west, he asked if I wanted to tag along and we could play Frisbee on the way.... Sounded good to me...

Well... 23 hours and 37 minutes later, I'm not so sure. We drove from Brighton, MI to Albuquerque NM with only 1 hour and 30 minutes CUMULATIVE stop time.....This includes our 1 run in with Johnny Law (just a warning), an out of order EXACT CHANGE only Toll Booth in OK (they may still be looking for us), food and fuel stops.

Our Moving… Continue

Beer & Bowling Greeen

Ok. So I have a biased judging station, however.....

I have a '3 hearted ale' on tap right now, that while "malty", still tastes pretty good. I know Ellis won't like it, but whatever.

However....I *do* have a 'hop slap' beer that I brewed from my own recipe that got the 'double thumbs up' as 'my new favorite beer' (these are actual quotes from people, I'm not making them up). The 'hop slap' is "continually hopped from 60 minutes, 20 min, 5 min, 2 min, 0 min of… Continue

Beer Brewing & Wine!

I was at my LHBS today and got some useful tips that should make my life less stressful (I know brewing should not be stressful). Anyway....I have a Saison getting ready for the secondary (should be sometime this week), and I have just brewed the "Hopslap" (or Hopslam light if you will). This should slap anyone upside the head with hops , but yet allow you to have more than 2. I'm shooting for 4.5% ABV vs. Hopslams 10%.

We should know in a month or so. I'm hoping for a… Continue

Beer Brewing (Phat Tyre)

Well, the Fat Tire clone is officially in the second stage after 13 days. I left it in the main because it didn't want to stop bubbling. :) Currently the SG is 1.019 from 1.050 and it's still going. Now thats 4% ABV for those of you that are not into the math. I think by the time it's done fermenting (probably 3 weeks from now), it'll hit 5.5%+

Tasted the sample and man. WOW! It was freaking awesome. I can't wait to tap it. Beautiful balance of malts and hops. A little tingly on the… Continue

Beer Brewing (mistake number one)

It had to happen sooner or later, I was personally hoping for later.

Important safety tip Igon.... Do not, under any circumstances, brew your beer while the AFC Championship game is on. You will do something wrong!

I tried this and ended up not getting a good OG. With a partial boil, I cooled the wort properly, but failed to add most of the water to the fermenter BEFORE pouring the wort on top of it. Therefore the water is sitting on top… Continue

Beer Brewing

I have just started an adventure into this hobby.

I'm hooked! to say the least.

I'm a self proclaimed HopHead. I love hops. My goal is to brew a beer that has the flavor of HopSlam by Bell's brewery, but with a much lower alcohol content so that I may drink more. :)

I'll try and keep this blog abreast of the goings on.


Serving: English IPA
2nd Stage: Fat Tire (Clone)
Main: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (Clone)
