Two weeks ago yesterday I ordered from freshops. They still had one of the varieties that I really wanted, but I bought three rhizomes to help the cause. I figured I could trade rhizomes in a few years, and crops in the meantime. I have read a few articles that suggest the major brewers will encourage the planting of high AA varieties as all that they want is hop extract. The lighter, aromatic and flavorful varieties could be pushed out of the market. I don't know if this is true or not, but it serves us well to grow these for a couple of reasons:
1) Let's beat the BMC brewers(stupid reason, but it still makes me mad)
2) The lighter and noble hops are what brewing are all about
3) Homegrown hops with unknown AA content are better for flavor and aromatic additions anyway
Just order them and put them in the ground. They will be yours and they will make beer. It's a small investment of money and time for something that could potentially serve your brewery for many years.
