I hate this thread <_<
The Force is what gives a brewer his power. It's an energy field created by yeast. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It converts polysaccharides to ethyl alcohol.

Beautiful Church!!  What denomination? 

Catholic. 

Awesome - thanks!

If you are interested, Holy Innocents (Chicago) is the name.  sounds like it has some history to it.

Beginning to see small buds that will flower and make hop cones!

The plant should now slow its vine growth and put energy toward making the beautiful hops.

OK!!! Disk golf at the quarry??

I threw a 200-gram Condor into the quarry 22 years ago.

I bet it's still at the bottom with the rails cars and the runaway missile from that botched military aircraft exercise.

huh, i threw a Ritz cracker 118 yards in to that same quarry

I've been struggling to keep my vines watered but one of the cascades is loaded.  I pulled a handful of cones off, slightly crushed them, put them in a pint glass and topped it off with some Bootknocker RyePA from the kegerator.   yum. :ale:

Anyone need fresh Willamette hop cones for home brewing?

I'll be picking this weekend, and can trade for some bottles of home brew.

Let me know ...

how much do I need to harvest for it to be worth anything for a homebrewer?  If I have enough to harvest I'll donate to someone in Chicago.  I believe I have both Wilmette and Cascade.  I'll have to verify with severstad.

My hops are Willamette.
And, they're fucking beautiful.

A homebrewer could use a little or a lot, depending on if other hops will be used in the brew (most likely).

I think I sent Smelly two or three gallon-size bags last year. And, I plan on doing the same this year. Maybe more.

Awesome!

Brewed a saison last night that I'll dry hop with them and will be doing a Belgian IPA also that I'll dry hop with them.

I'd be interested in some hops.  Plan on doing a super hoppy DIPA soon so this would work out very well  :yes:

I know I should brew with these ASAP but whats the general consensus on how long these will stay "wet"?  Throw em in the fridge until brewday?

Some more experienced TBSers may want to chime in, but I would definitely fridge them until brew day (which is hopefully soon).

Not sure how long they'll stay "wet" and yet not get moldy. I've frozen hop cones in the past, but I've dried them out on a screen for several days prior to freezing.

less than a week - the fridge will not be a big help.

Dry and freeze if you can't use soon.

Just racked a regular IPA onto 5 oz to dry hop and the Saison onto 2 oz!   :pickle:

Belgian IPA will be getting the same treatment as the regular IPA in the near future with whatever I have left.

So I picked my hops yesterday and basically have two big freezer bags full.  I'm giving them to one of Maggie's friends who just started brewing.  How long can i keep them in the bags (in the fridge)?  We tried to drop them off yesterday, but the dude isn't available until later in the week.
i'm not good at putting this stuff in words but i can't see myself with anyone else except maybe urbanhack.

Just bottled my Severstad Homegrown IPA today and it tastes great.  Ended up getting a little more than 50 bottles out of it.  It tastes a lot like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale *thumbs up*.

Just bottled my Severstad Homegrown IPA today and it tastes great.  Ended up getting a little more than 50 bottles out of it.  It tastes a lot like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale *thumbs up*.

Did you really name your brew that?   :-[

Sounds like a winner! (the description ... not necessarily the name).

Hack, the hops should be good if Maggie's friend uses them this weekend. Two big bags is a nice haul this year!

No I didn't officially call it that yet.  I was thinking Get/Make Me Wet Hop Ale lol.

Maggie's friend is not responding.

I have two freezer bags full of hops if anyone wants to come get them in the Chicago area.  I will be in Cicero and in Naperville on Saturday between noon and 4 and could potentially meet you somewhere.

Respond here or shoot me a PM if you are interested.

i'm not good at putting this stuff in words but i can't see myself with anyone else except maybe urbanhack.

The exact same Willamette hops I sent you, Kyle. I gave Hack some rhizomes last year.   :yes:

I dried out a little less than half of what Sev sent me and they smell absolutely amazing!

Enjoyed three brews from SmellySell this weekend.   :ale:
(all brewed with at least some of my Willamette wet hops)

The Saison was the best. Clean and tasty as heck.

The IPA was next. Cloudy, yummy.

The Belgian IPA had a bit of vegetable aftertaste, but was drinkable.

What a cool experience to taste these!

Thanks, Smelly!   :cheers:
