Continous hopping (à la Dogfish Head)
Like the Dogfish Head IPAs and want to try and replicate it? Need the plans for your very own copy of their “Sir Hops-A-Lot?” Here are the plans for a homebrewer’s version of the continuous hopping machine.
Randall the Enamel Animal (also à la Dogfish Head)
Sam at Dogfish Head also came up with an bizarre “toy” called Randall the Enamel Animal. It allows you to pump beer from the keg through whole hops on the way to your glass. Talk about fresh hop aroma! It also lets you play with very interesting combinations...like a traditional Czech Pils but passed though Centennial Hops! I found this page out on the web were Geir Ove Gr�nmo out in Norway built his own. Here are links to his blog detailing the journey.
Here's another set of instructions from The Maltose Falcons club out in CA.
- How To Brew: John Palmer’s step-by-step companion site for his book. A “must read” for anyone who wants to brew. Buy it here
- Paul’s Brewing Page: Excellent overview of the whole brewing process. Lots of photos.
- Mike’s Homebrew Page: More good photos of the brewing process and lots of good designs for building equipment at home.
- Brew 365/: good clone recipes and articles on styles, techniques, hops and yeast.
