I'm looking for quick disconnects and a 3 and 2 way valve. It would be nice to find a check valve. I'm using 1/2" tubing. Any help would be great, Paul Return to table of contents

No further explanation was given, and a cursory (perhaps too cursory) look at their forums and various Googling revealed no information. So what's up with that?

Date: Thu, 21 Aug 2008 14:59:02 -0500 From: Jeff Bell <jeff at bellmedialabs.com> Subject: Identifying Fresh Hops Quick question, I have just picked a bunch of fresh hops from my neighbor's garden and he could not remeber the strian. I am currently drying them out and when rubbed have a nice aroma, I'm trying to find out a way to tell what kinda strain it is. I have heard of brewers making tea to find the bitterness level, but I have not done this yet. So my obvious question is, How can I tell what type of hop it is (alpha acid test?) and to make a tea, how much should I steep? I have been reading this HBD for years now and figure I should write to the experts. Drink the beer I love, make the beer I need. -Jb Return to table of contents
