62 BHP ?? an indication of power but I'm sure something better can be made of the acronym. Big Hop Presence...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW put me down for a bottle and ill swap you for some northern beers

Adrian Tierney-Jones said...

got any malt going in…

Flagon of Ale said...

This is great. You should send a bottle to Dogfish Head and tell them they can stop trying. Can't wait to hear what the name will be.

Fishter said...

Malted hops. Is that even possible from a bine?

Thanks for the wows gents.

There will be some malt (pale, crystal and roasted OG 1065) Adrian and we are resisting the temptation to mash some hops.

The only part of a hop you could malt is the seeds Fishter and the result would be pointless and probably on fire.

What no Motueka? :-)

Matthew Clark said...

Balance is also a word.

Stuart Howe said...

There is hope yet Tim. I've got a couple of other potential new varieties that I am looking at to try to get to 65.

For this brew Mr Balance has been given a holiday Lupe.

Ménage á Soixante-(number) would be fun.

Unknown said...



Can you put some to one side till the 26th, when I'm back from Ghent?

Stuart Howe said...

69 varieties may now be a realistic target Zak so the scope for innuendo could be immense.

Pete hi, You don't need to rush back (you lucky so and so) the beer will not be ready for sale for a few weeks. The brew is Friday and 20 of the varieties are going into the CT dry. We'll opt to rack when the flavour is optimum. I would guess mid to late March.

yes. crazy.

Adrian Tierney-Jones said...

69 — trust you…

Stuart Howe said...

You are welcome to join us if you are in the area Adrian. For the brewing rather than anything man-love related that is.
