Just to advise Homer, I've had good luck with Zues and Sterling. Newport looks promising for clean bittering. Centennial and Mt. Hood should do well but my conditions have not been the best at our old house so they've lagged.

You'll probably get just over a pound dry.

Yoop if I lived near you I'd go pick them! I haven't had hallertau in a while, and I do like it in some beers as a change from the American Hops that normally dominate my beers. I understand they will not taste exactly the same as the hops they use from Germany.

I just can't believe you'd let all of those hops die on the vine! I bet one or two of those guys near you would love to get some use out of them if you asked...

In my second year of hops with three rhysomes. I had a very VERY large crop and I probably will get a second crop because we have a long summer and it won't freeze here until the end of December. I also didn't really take care of the plants because I thought I was leaving the country but ended up staying. I think I should get 3-5 lbs from my meager garden.

I'd suggest the EKG.

My first year Goldings plant in a pot reached about 16' this summer down here in Eaton Rapids. It only produced a couple of cones, while my 20' Cascade produced 2 oz dry. My Columbus plant only reached about 10'-12' but is loaded with nice fat cones shown below that are almost ready for harvest.

So, EKG is common in english pales? Cause that is normally where I'd use them. Oh, also in Wit I think.
