anicola: very good move!! I was going to suggest that but thought it was too late and that you had tossed it. It should be fine next year and may even grow some this year. We have several months left in the hop season.
B: no problem bud. You make good stuff and other brewers should try it. I love the Saaz and cascade flavors!
July has been one of the wettest months in years in Chattanooga, TN. My first year Columbus have produced a few ounces of nice cones and some male flowers. No worries at all. I just pick them off and let the cones flourish.
