Default Feral Hops

One of the primaries in my collective has been informed that his neighbor used to brew and there are hops on his property, but ver a fence. Neighbor is gone, and we would like to take rhizomes rom the existing. How should we do this?

How long of a cut?
should we use a clipper?
Should we store for alitle longer?

Should we bother?

Is on his father's land, and dad says it is still viable.

FOR THOSE THT ARE HUNG UP ON SOME SORT OF SCI-FI REFERENCE - Put Down the Hookah and here is an explainer!

I am part of a group of 10 guys that get together and brew beer. You may call us a club, and we do quite often, but sometimes you have to pull htat thesaurus out from under the short leg on your hideously outdated couch and use for something else besides supporting your chickenscratch while your sign the pizza hut receipt.

Primary being one of the three other guys that makes an effort to come every brew, and makes an effort to be a part of the process.

I am sorry, but we have yet to have any elections, so I have not risen to the ranks of head poobah of poopoo yet. I am just one of 10 guys that brews beer together.


I like beer.

It could be an online game thing, you know like WOW freaks and such. The primary in his collective could be on the other side of the planet, but to him the virtual world is more real than the real world.

Could you imagine spending all day talking with people over the internet who you have never met about stuff, that you all like to do. I mean yikes, talk about a weird thing to do. :-)

Yeah who the hell would spend hours on here asking for advice and giving advice to people they have never met before about a subject that is basically a very small niche hobby that consumes bank accounts and personal lives





that would be most of us
