    Is that Doug Odell? If it is, that doesn’t help me one bit.

    Yes, it is Doug. And hops are part of the story.

    It’s Meantime, isn’t it? The glass on the copper lid is etched with their name…

    That appears to be a hopback at Meantime.. or maybe it is the kettle.. That seems even larger then Odell’s hop back which is more then sufficient for a 50 barrel brewhouse. Beautiful piece of equipment!

    What were they brewing Stan?

    Didn’t know the Brits put aroma hops in their beer. Wouldn’t that take away from the lovely diacetyl character? (comment not meant to offend, simply a bit of banter for the pommies)

    Chad: Seems you need to get out a bit more… 😉

    Loving the format of this post, nice job!

    Looking forward to figuring it out.

    I’m going to always answer “Nowhere in Oregon.” I’m going to mostly/always be correct.

    Quick note from a short walk to the German Hop Museum in Wolnzach (maybe I shouldn’t have revealed that – since there might be another Where? soon):

    Yes, it is Meantime and I guess I should have blurred the window. Doug is looking into Meantime’s “Hopnick,” a hop back made by Rolec. Odell Brewing was one of the first to install a “Hopnick.”

    Which only begs the question: What’s the difference between a hopnick and a hopback?

      On my list. I’d rather get the complete answer than dash off a quick one.
