Default Decided to start growing Hops...

Can anyone help me decided the best varietal to grow?

Want to have A LOT, so how many Rhizomes should I buy? TIA!

depends on where in the country you are located. Also, what styles do you like to brew? I've got both aroma hops and high alpha acid hops growing... but it really depends on the flavor profiles you are looking for.

Well, I live in the Tennessee.

I have a ton of land, and along with Hops, I will have my usual 3 acres of various veggies.

I would like to choose a "catch all" hop, that can be used for various styles of beer. I can also run a few different types of hops.

I've got a IPA going right now. I'm into hoppy beers.
