Growing hops as a side hustle? This week we talk about priorities, big rocks and hop widows.
Don’t call it dirt. Dirt is dead. Soil is alive (insert Vincent Price laugh)! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!!!!!
In another “we read it so you don’t have to”, we dissect a random writer’s claims of the big 5 trends in craft beer. Spoiler: we’re not impressed.
In another installment of “they asked it on the Discord” we discuss the sciency-science around hop breeding. Haploid, diploid, triploid. We get all ploidy on you this week.
What do people like more than technical articles and the right way to do things? Horror stories of things gone wrong! We share some fun from past catastrophes (most of them man-made of course).
It’s hot. Damn hot. But then it gets crazy cold. The old max/min for temperature, rainfall, etc is becoming less and less relevant as variability increases and timeframes change. How do you pivot to accommodate your crop?
This week we discuss some of the beer trends of 2020 and then get into where farming could be in the next 20 years. It’s full of odd concepts like “share of throat”, “hippie vinegar tea” and “decorating the cow with data”. Also, see what happens when Gregg tries a really unpleasant beer.
A bit of a mixed bag this week. We start talking about copper and then vent a bit about the basic blocking and tackling involved in running a brewery during the digital age.
As we discussed in Part 1, Customer Service is a mindset spanning all aspects of the customer lifecycle. When things go sideways you get into the Customer Support part of the equation. This week is about how – and how not – to react in those situations.
Turn down your volume as we scream Crown Rot! We hope you enjoy this discussion of mushy, moist crown rot. Plus, can profanity solve your farming woes?
