Last night, I needed to brew something that will age quickly to a drinkable state, as the other beers already fermenting will need another ~25 days or more.

I present RH1 Ridgemont High, ready in ~7 days.  The refractometer showed 1.053 last night, unlike the calculated version here.

RH1 Ridgemont High
American Pale Ale
OG/FG/IBU 1.0478 / 1.012 / 41
SRM 13
ABV 4.7%
Canadian Two-row Pale 81.3%
Belgian Special B 3.1%
Belgian Biscuit 3.1%
Torrified Wheat 12.5%

HOPS in oz
Warrior 0.2 @ 60
Perle 0.5 @15
Amarillo 0.5 @ 10
Czech Saaz 1 @ 5

Gone for two days, hops go crazy!

Every plant is producing tons now and the hop pods are getting huge!

I guess you could say things are... hopping.

Android and the security cost of fragmentation.  This is something I mentioned to people back when, even though I chose an Android phone all those years ago.  I did pick Android phone for the antenna port ... not the OS.
Maybe having worked in embedded hardware, I have slight bias against the "do anything you want" logic of Android. 
That said, I think well written articles like this might force Google or parent Alphabet (soup) to rethink what they are responsible for after all.

Who wants to have their grandma's phone hacked after all ?!

Would you look at that?! 4 days later all those are Centennial Hops pods!

I'm quite chuffed that my first year plants will yield anything really.

WoW, so yes.  This is among the earliest game quests.

And I seem to miss-remember, Brewnall's quest is about Shimmerweed not hops.  And frankly, that was easy to "farm".

Experimental brew today: going for a namesake of my domain.

The grain bill was:
44.4% Gambrinus ESB Pale Malt
44.4% Canadian Two-row Pale
 5.6% Franco-Belges Kiln Coffee
 5.6% Torrified Wheat

Hops
Warrior 0.2 ounce at 60 min
Czech Saaz 0.5 ounce at 30 min
Czech Saaz 1 ounces at 5 min

Mash at 152 and crash chill via plate chillers at then end.
Fermentation with White Labs Flemish Ale Blend WLP665

This should be something interesting in ~30 days.

I was treated to this funny video yesterday.

I can only say that this is painfully accurate. Must watch.
