In Topic: Ska Brewing Mole Stout

I wouldn't mind trying that one. Unfortunately Louisiana isn't exactly on the cutting edge when it come to craft beer, so a lot of good stuff isn't available here. Dogfish Head's Theobroma has some ingredients similar to the stuff in Mole Stout, have you tried that one?

Welp....the Daconil seemed to take care of the fungus, sort of. Unfortunately one of my cayenne plants took a turn for the worse and kicked the bucket. The other two looked to be doing well at first but now are struggling to slowly grow some leaves back. Both of our banana peppers died, but the bells seem ok. My Anaheim plants started to get infected even after being treated (they may have already been infected), but the disease did not spread on them as badly and they seem to be recovering. Same with a couple of my Scotch bonnets. Daconil seems to work, as long as you use it before the disease is too far along.

@ Papa: Thanks, everybody made it through unscathed. We were pretty lucky, my neighborhood didn't even lose power. Fortunately all of our plants are in containers, and they seemed to enjoy their little indoor vacation.

I'm not going to make this into a glog, but if anyone is interested, all I did to these seeds was put them in front of a window for a couple days to dry them. Then I stuck them in a little cup of MG Seed Starter, watered them with MG Bloom Booster, put the cup on a heating mat, and covered it with plastic wrap. I think this is the fastest I've ever had seeds sprout, which is the interesting part.
