Hello from Yakima, WA

Postby yso191 » Mon Sep 04, 2017 10:20 pm

Hello All,

The name here is Steve. I am an experienced home brewer and certified beer judge. I have recently become very interested in distillation so am trying to drill down on the art & science. I live right in the heart of hop country. 70% of the U.S. supply of hops come from Yakima County, and (as I recall) about half of the world's supply as well. Anyway, I look forward to learning from you all.

Hi Steve, and thanks for the hops. Tracker's right on with the brewing experience (especially allgrain) being a great leg up on distillation. I'm on Whidbey Island (I can say that now that I'm legit) and there are lots of us in Washington. Maybe we can get together sometime.

You're in the right place on this forum.

You can make whisky in a reflux still, you can make vodka in a potstill,
and you can eat chicken noodle soup with a crescent wrench. But...

Welcome in.
Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine
