Re: Homegrown "Cascade Hops" for swapsies

Hi Minnesota. The only thing that I would have to swap would be beer, and that's not really practical to ship to you, and I guess you are making your own anyway. Near impossible to get cascade rhizomes on this side of the pond. Any chance you would be willing to send a few rhizomes to Ireland or eve...

When I was in Wales everyone called me Paddy, and now that I am back in Ireland eveyone calls me Taffy. I am very proud to be both. I go to Boston now and then, and practically eve...

Re: Where to go in Dublin/Cork?

Majority of people brewing cider get their kit/ingredients online, and the more resourceful make their presses and other bits and piceces. There's quite a craft brew community here, but nothing bricks and mortar wise, same re self sufficiency. If you only have a day, have a look at the below link fo...

Re: Hello from Co. Clare, Ireland

Welcome Ger. The Irish contingent really seems to be building momentum recently, which is great to see, as it's a great site. I am doing similar things to you, plus a bit of homebrew.

Cheers,
Billy.

Re: DIY Apple masher

hi Ellendra, that's very interesting. I have a brand new waste disposer that I have never used, still in box, as not happy with thought of just putting waste down the sink. I make cider, so will look on net to see if I can gt plans for this kind of masher.

Thanks for the idea.
Billy.

Hi All.

I have been in contact with the two people that I sent seeds to, and they are sending some back to me, so no need for anyone else to send any sympathy seeds.

Thanks anyway.
Billy.

Hi All. I am not too worried that I didn't receive anything, as it was just a bit of fun anyway, and it won't stop me getting involved in future seed swaps. I think it is a great idea in general, as no one ever seems to plant all the seeds that they buy, and I definitely can't keep up with all the o...

Secret Santa style seed swap

HI All. I think that I sent the seeds to poster "hopeful", and as she didn't have an address as per her post, and as I haven't received anything, I pm'd her with my address to see if she wanted to send directly. I entered twice and sent two sets of seeds, but didn't get anything so maybe m...
