Hey guys! My friend has a bunch of open land in south-central PA and he's going to let me grow behind his blacksmith shop. Has anybody had good results in this area? Any particular breeds I should start with?

south-central PA should be great for hops. my standard go-to first-timer suggestions are cascade, centennial, columbus and nugget. this assumes you like american pale ale/ipas.

What hops should I grow? Hop grower's comparison table

Drinking: a chocolate oatmeal stout, a belgian imperial stout, a Vertical Epic 09.09.09 clone
Fermenting: a split-batch belgian blond/saison
Aging: an oud bruin, a BDSA/Dubbel thingy, a soured Saison, my "Wild Oats" brett/sour, and some other stuff i can't think of at the moment...
Up next: who knows. maybe providing links to recipes for the above beers.

You know I am in Halifax and they grow great here. Just test the soil I am ph and N defient here.


Got Hops?

There is no problem to big or small not to be fixed by enough beer!
Just do not have your beer held hostage by the wife or you will never get anything halfway done!
