AB is already the biggest hops producer in the US though.

When I toured the St. Louis Brewery, I asked about hops types. . . they replied, "yes, we use hops."

If you buy them in bulk from places like hopsdirect (I would if I could store them properly), they can be $5 - $6 per pound (depending on variety). Someday I'll have a chest freezer and will be able to buy them by the pound.

You can also buy a 200lb bale of Cascade leaf hops for $630 ($3.15/lb). Chinook was even a little cheaper, $2.85/lb in BULK.

I would like a bale just to have around. The smell would be awesome. I'd make pillows.

I was thinking about filling a small swimming pool. You know, for a party.

I wish I could get Hallertau's for $6 / lb.

I don't like Chinook or Cascades...sorry.

Bet it smelled good though
I've used spent hops (dry hopping) in my BBQ/smoker. They do smell nice!

Too hot this summer, after a record cold spell in Feb. Tough year.

A fire in a hop field AFTER harvest is a good thing. Kills bug eggs & fungus spores, but since the roots are well buried, no problem there.

Tell me more! Do you use them for smoking food or just for the aroma?!

What I'm curious about...

I've heard of using hops to smoke food. I've heard of using smoked malt in beer.

What would happen if you smoked some malt with hops? What would a hops-smoked pale ale taste like? Like the marijuana brew? Like an old ashtray?

Or something wonderful?...
