Pride of Ringwood (Ringwold?) is an Australian hops, I believe. A
discerning nose can find it in most if not all Australian beer, such as
Fosters or Coopers. It's got an earthy aroma that I really like. I've
never seen any or heard of anyone using any in the States. If anyone
knows if it's available please let me know too.
Re. SS pot size: If you plan on doing all-grains batches, you'll need
at least a 7 gallon (28 qt.) pot. 10 gallon (40 qt.) is best.
Wyeast packages: I popped the inner seal on a Wyeast package, dated
January, yesterday. This morning, less than 24 hours at about 80degF, it
was puffed up to about 2/3 of capacity. It is on the verge of breaking
through at the upper right, just about where it says "Cut here" on the
back. It almost looks like it was designed to puff up more there, to help
in cutting or pouring or something, but that would be a dumb design. It's
in a sanitized sealed bag now, so if it pops, no problem, but is this package
slightly defective? I seem to remember the problem was usually with the
bottom seal, which held fine on this package (I did the book trick).
