Hops and Mash Tun, Update.

A couple of weeks ago I planted my Cascade and Chinook hop rhizomes in pots in the backyard, and today I went to have a look at them to make sure they had enough water – and they’ve finally peeked out of the soil!
Cascade hops!

And, while I had the hose out, I filled the mash-tun to check the recirculation, to see if it leaked. It did. Sigh… New mashtun for me now I think. Got my eye on a 60L Techni-Ice which is the brand name one, not the Bunnings ripoff.
