to remove the males, figure out which is which during flowering season, then dig out the ones that have no cones. on the other hand maybe there are no males(although not likely), did any of the cones you picked have seeds? no seeds no males.

I just harvested 28oz (dried) of wild hops! Now it's time to make a ridiculously hopped IPA

Default Source for wild hops

Perfectly safe to brew with wild hops and drying on your dehydrator is fine (done both). Weight them wet and when they weigh 1/5 of what they did when you started then they are dry.

If you're going to bitter with them use 7.5% Alpha acid as a starting point. You're on a wild adventure so why not go all the way (done this too)


Take a look at silverhops.com

Propagating and growing an entire new hop variety from one original wild hop in Wisconsin...helps to have a professor of horticulture around. They are selling this year to homebrewers, how cool

There is a local microbrewer that found an old recipe in a journal that was written by a guy that worked in a brewery in the fifties. The microbrewer gave it a try and it turn ed out to be quite popular. It is called Marathon after the city it had been historically brewed in. It drinks similar to Miller High Life IMO. It is good beer.

I was also told by someone else that Miller has a corn component, but I don't have a real citaion for that info.

Marathon - Bull Falls Brewery

Yep. All the macros are big, nasty adjunct-filled brews. Corn is used because it's cheaper and has less flavor.

Back on topic, how did your wild hop ale come out, OP?

The Marathon is pretty good stuff. The brewery is distributing locally and into adjoining states at present.

I don't hate regular MHL, BTW. (That is the difference between objective and subjective criticism.)

MHL is in my opinion the best of the BMC trifecta. I wouldn't buy it on purpose, but it's at least a clean enough lager that it doesn't taste BAD. In fact, it doesn't taste like anything at all.

Take the BMC bashing as it was intended: authentic, but generally lighthearted.

MHL should only be sold in 40oz bottles. I would be interested in a male and a female rhizome!

4.5 litres of water

strain in to bucket
mix in sugar and malt
add yeast when cooled
leave in bucket 5 days
syphon off buscket into screwtop bottles
it clears in seven days and leaves sediment
pour carefully (dont disturb sediment) enjoy (16p a pint!)
don't know about gravity but it about 3.5 to 4.5
if goes flat add 1/2 teaspoon sugar and leave for 5 days

i get cheap bottle water at the start and then you have sterile bottles to syphon back into
