Re. a question on hops: The first year will not yield any hops to speak
of; it takes at least 2 years before you get any measurable harvest, and it
is also dependent on the type of hops. Cascade grows faster in general than
Hallertauer, for example. For fertilizing, I've heard than cow manure works
well, but I use Miracle Grow instead, with good results.

My cellar gets damp and musty in the summer, so I have a constant supply
of water produced from the de-humidifier. Would this be good water to
brew with? Seems like it should be pure unadulterated water....
