I'm not so sure you had to pull it as those male parts really can't pollinate due to any pollen produced being non-viable. That trait is very common in Zeus/Columbus and I've never had any problems with seeds over the past 6 years.

ARGH!! No way you should have pulled that baby!! I have had multiple Columbus bines tranny out on me with NO issues, no seeds in flowers, nada. I don't even bother to cut the male parts off as they are completely harmless. Listen to B-Hoppy...he know his hops and makes some damned good hop candy! Nice meeting you at NHC this year B!

The Tranny develop due to stress, hot weather, not enough water, too much water, ect. My Zeus did the same thing last year, the female flowers were great.
