Just finished my Hop pre-order! Looking forward to Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Mt. Hood, Nugget, Perle, Pride of Ringwood, Willamette, Magnum, Sterling, and Zeus. Anyone else place there pre-order yet? If so what are you looking forward to?
I have not decided what I am going to grow next year. My first year columbus did very well so I may add 5 plants of this as well as maybe 5 each of centennial and chinook. I'm not sure I will add to my magnum, galena or EK Goldings varieties.
Thanks to Homercidal, I ended up with 17 cascades that did very well so I'm probably good with this variety.
__________________ All I ask is three beers apiece for each of my co-workers...I think a man workin outdoors, feels more like a man if he can have a bottle of suds.
I got mine from tyymegarden.com. I've bought from there before when planting hops in a demonstration garden and had good success (all the hops took and came back the following year). This is my first time buying for myself and I'm hoping for similar success so that I ca take cuttings and propagate.
Wow - that's quite the selection! If you sucessfully grow all those you will be able to brew almost every beer known to man
Thanks! I'm hopeful. I'll be planting them in the Sonoma county area which prior to the mechanization of the 1950's had 10,000's of acres in hops. I'll try and keep a record of everything and let you all know.
