Hops and Brewday Pics

I have taken hop pics a few times over the last few weeks and have not gotten around to posting…so I’m consolidating some time lapse hop pics and Sunday’s brewday pics into one post.

The hops have really gone crazy.  I have been training them along the gazebo frame, and they’re getting so thick on there that they’re putting off 3 foot offshoots.  Pretty cool, and exactly what I was hoping for.

The hops on the other side are starting to take off, but nothing like the big ones.

Sunday’s brewday started early, and not without a few hiccups.  My thermometer bit the dust (the handheld one I use for mash temp),  and Jim had a few water temp mishaps.  But in the end, we both hit our numbers and are very optimistic about the brews.  I brewed an Oktoberfest and Jim made a Czech Pilsner.

Enjoy the pics.
