I finally got my two cascade hop rhizomes planted this evening. I was trying to recall an easy way to plant hop rhizomes, so off to Google I went… and found a quick video on YouTube on how a hop farm does it.
Tonight, I moved the stout that my brew partner Kevin and I made on National Homebrew Day (Mash Bash 2014) at Adventures in Homebrewing (Taylor) from the primary to the secondary fermentor… where I added a little over 5.5 pounds of mango! The FG (final gravity) looks to be spot on!
I also had the honor of ‘assisting’ my wife, Jennifer (aka SWMBO – She Who Must Be Obeyed), in brewing her second beer. Her first beer (made last year) was the St. Patty’s Irish Stout, so this year, she brewed up the Genius Stout. Her first beer was a huge hit, and I think that this one will be just as good!

Yup! Another stupid beer blog!
Why? Because I like beer! I like to drink it, and I LOVE to brew it!
My goal for this blog is to take my passion and share it with the world. I want to do product reviews, book reviews, recipes, stories, beer tastings and anything else I can do, but only about beer.
I hope you enjoy it… I know I will!
