here's his little hop patch this year. he said it was a good crop. I'm not sure the type/brand.
I've been brewing for a couple of years. I like all styles and tend to try some strange things. I extract, partial mash and all grain depending on the recipe and the weather. I have a winter ale in secondary, and three other batchs waiting to be made.

I watch the air lock for fermentation to end, wait a few days, then secondary. I was bottling from the secondary for awhile but have better results to rack to bottle bucket just before bottling.
