so thanks to my favorite brewing bible, the complete joy of homebrewing by charlie papazian, i located a website that has hops hops hops available. so i decided to celebrate by ordering 11 different kinds of hops. that's right, 11. i already have enough hops to make 2 batches of 'the hop,' but i decided, why make 2 batches of the hop when we can kick this shit up and make one batch of 'the hop' and a complimentary batch, 'the hop: overkill,' which will feature the 11 different kinds of hops i speak of, including: pacific gem, sorachi ace, amarillo, cascase, centennial, chinook, mt. hood, perle, summit, williamette and fuggle. count 'em. we'll use a combination of these in the boil as well as use quite a few of them in a dry hopping stage propsed to go exactly 22 days young. f'in crazy... and we'll definitely keep you posted.
