RE: Hops
Sure! You,ll have to wait till next winter for a rhizome although I could possibly give you a vine cutting if you keen for that, ive got some in the garden I cut last week, they will need a few weeks to root up a bit before I could send though, ive had success in the past from doing this.
If your keen remind me in a few weeks.

Hey mate, beer tasting and yeast swap sounds good... I havnt smacked the pack for the 1026 yet, but ive been thinking about splitting it. Are you not wanting any 1469, its the business!!! What strains do you have at the mo?

Im out of auckland till around the 3rd I think, ill have to check and get back to ya...

Hahaha "done the rounds" I like it... But I thought about that, and when I split it all off, I did it before it was pitched, so all the stuff I have saved is Gen 1, I gave Barry gen 2 cos I had just bottled it... Honestly, its an amazing yeast, gets me all gushy thinking about it ;oP lol

Ill have a read up on those strains and let you know what one id be keen on :o)

Mine would have to be around 2.5m tall now! I like that idea too, I'm going to try and root some cuttings for James P etc, it looks like it'll work pretty well (fingers crossed!)

Awesome, yeah I thought I'd try and hook James up with something this season. I'll try and remember to get a pic tonight after work, it's overshot the 1.8m stake and just charging upwards with no support... they're strong bastards!

Hey Jo, Still keen on another beer swap? Afraid I ceremonially drank the last bottle of Saison last night but I could supply a couple of bottle of Oatmeal Stout if your interested. My parents are heading up on the 24th, can;t remember the address of the top of my head but you can see the hospital from there if thats anywhere near you. Cheers

I think I'd have to go for the IPA. Just email me your address and I'll get them to drop in, probably late afternoon/early evening but I'll confirm. Cheers

Hi Joking. At moment I put estimate about $260 for the 3 days excluding food, beers & getting to Nelson. This includes mini-bus transport, entry to Marchfest (earlybird tickets $15), backpacker for 2 nights, & maybe small charges for brewery visits. Shall I put you on interested list?

Hi Joseph, yes of course I remember you from the guild. I didn't realise you were JoKing until recent thou.

Thanks for the invite, I'm keen to come along. I don't have anything to enter thou.

My weekends are hit and miss with family commitments, so I can't say for sure I'll be there at the moment.

Thanks mate, will take your advice on the grist

Reckon I could swap out Columbus for the Centennial?

Will also dry hop with the same varieties and amounts as the 10, 5, 0 min additions if it's a good idea?

Also might bump it up to 1.070 and 100 IBU haha.
