That's good to know and nice that you have options; I guess I'll have to discuss with my LHBS when I go to all-grain and see if he can order some for me... Yes, the hops do get expensive and I know once I start brewing bigger batches and more consistent recipes, that will become more of an issue. What type of requirements minimum order-wise do the hop farmers have?

Ivanhoe are real nice dry hopped in kegs and the brewery i work at use it as the main hop in our cask beers.

I don't know. When the harvest comes in, I'll check in with Glen at Rising Sun Farms www.coloradoorganichops.com and Jessica at www.flyingsquirrelorganichops.com

I bought my rhizomes from Glen this spring, and he is a member here.

If you find other direct sources for organic hops, please share!

I had a Mikkellar 'Cluster' single-hop IPA recently, and Cluster really blew me away. An excellent hop - spicy, floral, clean. I imagine Ivanhoe would be pretty nice since it's from the same lineage.

California Cluster, Ivanhoe's ancestor, is historically what was used in California Common (steam) beers, right? Now, it's predominantly Northern Brewer, but historically it was Cluster, I think.

We have used Bravo on numerous occasions but in combination with other IIPA hop favs so I can only say that as a blended hop it is great. Never heard of or used Ivanhoe but I am intrigued and must get ahold of some and see what we can come up with.

I love to see that the bravo is being enjoyed! This hop is from my farm in Idaho. I currently have 18 acres of organic hops Centennial, Cascade, Chinook, Bravo. I need a web page but i have enough trouble keeping inventory.

I love Bravo! Just had a SMaSH IPA with Bravo and Maris Otter. Delicious!

Wow, small world, Idahohops! Well, I'm glad to have four ounces of your organic Bravo hops! We've just started drinking the IPA I made with them and its lovely, really good. Thank you for growing them, so that I can brew with them!

I've sent you a private message, when you have a moment to respond.

Cheers!
