Gregg didn’t get enough sleepy-time during the first discussion, so James brings more photosynthesis to the party. Plus threats of close-up magic.
Weird stories from 10+ years of consulting in the hops business. Coffin oasts, Bette Midler and Camry tractors. Names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.
It’s time to go shopping! No sexy stuff like tractors and balers; this week we make an Amazon wish list of pipettes, gloves, scales and first aid kits.
Well sure, you know that light is essential for healthy plant growth. Do you know why and all the big words that go along with it? Professor James is in the house!
We last spoke about brewery collaborations waaaay back in episode #2. The pandemic has opened up new opportunities for these cross-brewery partnerships so we’re revisiting the whys and hows of these pairings.
How do you know when it’s time to take that next step? There are many different ways to grow, and many reasons to do it. Also, since this is us, there are lots of misleading reasons that should be red flags and make you think twice.
How are you getting water to your plants? Do you know how to optimize your path from source to yard? Well, well, well. Let’s talk about it.
When are your cones ready to harvest? How much water should you use? What happens when you spray here but not there? Well you did the same things last year, do you remember what happened? Were you taking notes to refer back to now? Take control of your Information Destiny (patent-pending @hopnology).
Huzzah, harvest is done and I can leave the field until March! Wait, what?
This is one of our “list” episodes where we go back and forth with a whole bunch of “uh-oh” moments. While you can’t always make lemonade out of lemons, you don’t necessarily have to give up either.
