I have chinook, saaz, crystal, golding, cascade, fuggle, sterling, nugget, cluster, brewers gold, centenial, zeus, and canadian redvine. Haven't seen shoots yet and haven't dug rhizomes, but I typically get at least a couple rhizomes of each every year, with a ton of fuggle and cascade I'm looking to trade for varieties I don't have yet, especially citra or sorachi ace if I possible. PM if you want to swap.

unfortunately not possible - those two varieties are patented/non-public. no one has them, except the farms that own them or are under contract (which includes stipulations that they not sell/trade the rhizomes). they'll go public at some point... who knows when, tho.

Thanks for that. BTW, that's an excellent hop comparison table you put together. We all appreciate you doing that so well.

Oh, where did you get the info on the Canadian Red Vine variety. A fellow member threw in some on an exchange I did a couple of years back, but I haven't been able to find much info about them to brew that much with them. They grow like a weed on steroids and produce a ton of cones even in parital sun.

thanks for you kind words, always nice to hear it's useful.

i found info on the redvine a little all over the place. my research methodology wasn't very rigorous - as i came across a new source of info i'd add it to the spreadsheet without keeping notes of what came from where. so the best i can tell you is that the source is one of the references at the bottom of the spreadsheet...

i just googled "how to use canadian redvine" and came up with a bunch of info. some compare them to cluster, while others mention cascade. they contain a hig percentage of cohumulene so they aren't good for bittering (unless you like that harsh cohumulene bitterness, of course).

A fellow up in New York, Norm Soine(RIP), gave me some rhizomes back in the early 90's and no one knew anything about them. While visiting out in Oregon I asked Dr. Al Haunold. He did an oil profile on them and positivly ID"d them. So now they're growing at the research center collection. I never picked up anything really desirable 'aroma-wise' from them, but what do I know. I can smell pretty good, but not good enough to pick up what others can. http://www.ars.usda.gov/SP2UserFiles/person/2450/hopcultivars/21679.html

Just got done digging for the day and here's a pic of the monster Redvine crown. it's been in the same location for about 14 years and gets cut back every Spring. Never had any escapees yet.

Rehashing this thread. I would like to get either Warrior or Summit, I have cascade, centennial, Zeus, brewers gold, Canadian Red Vine, Willamette, chinook and either EKG or Saaz (I think I got their labels reversed last year). OR if any one is just interests in paying for shipping I can send out a rhizome. I am taking them out of their 30 gallon containers they have been in for the past three or four years and putting them in the ground soon. PM me address and type and I will get them out as soon as I can.
