I started this thread based on the premise that I was going to try and get some Summit rhizomes that aren't available to anybody outside commercial growers that actually have a license to grow it...but alas.

That said, we should do a group buy this season. I'll send Dave an email and see if he'd be up for giving any volume discounts.

Buyer beware. I had a twig from Freshops last year that didn't sprout. I e-mailed them and they asked if I planted it right side up. The two others that i got from them that actually looked viable had already broken ground. I wrote back and never got a response. Others on here have had good experience with this site, but an offering of simcoe or amarillo rhizomes won't be enough to bring me back. Too many other places to get roots. YMMV

What do you guys think? If anybody has had experience running GB's here in the past, would you be so kind as to offer up examples of others that have been well organized and executed?

Default Summit rhizomes

Hi, were you successful in obtaining Summit rhizomes? I'm looking to buy a couple for my home hop garden.

I was thinking though, money talks and if there were more interested parties involved we might be able to come up with a nice offer...just a thought. Anybody interested?

Some info on Summit for those that haven't used it:

Summit is a recently-released high-alpha (17 to 19% AAU) hop variety. It is a dwarf variety grown on a low trellis system. Because the low trellis is not machine harvestable, these hops are gently picked by hand in the field and are, assumably, less damaged by the harvesting process. Chumulone levels are low at 25-28% of alpha.
Summit is said to have strong orange and tangerine citrus notes in its flavor, making it ideal for brewing American style IPAs (especially IIPAs) and Pale Ales.

Typical Use : Bittering
Alpha Acid : 17 to 19% AAU
Origination : USA
Characteristics : Citrus (orange, tangerine, grapefruit)
Styles : American Pale Ale, American IPA
Similar Hops : Cascade, Amarillo

EDIT: Mods - please feel free to move if you think this would be best somewhere else.
