Dammit, I missed that somehow, I think because I was looking in domestic hops. Just called Northern Brewer (the store) and tried to cancel, hopefully they can catch it before it goes out. Thanks for the heads up

Finally ordered my hops rhizomes today. Five of each: Mt Hood, Magnum and Williamette.

I was a little late and missed out on the Sterling, which I really wanted.
Ordered the Mt Hood instead.

Any Canadians ordering from Crannog, the order deadline is April 7th. They are dug out in April and ship out April-May.

My rhizomes arrived today... my wife calls me:

"Hunny, you have these little trees that came for you today"

Gotta love her!

I live in oregon, corn for ethanol does not grow well here as it needs to dry in the fields before harvest and we get wet falls so ;hops are not losing growing space to corn however because of the growing acres of corn other crops are going up and some of those crops will grow in oregon, and oregon is growing canola to make ethanol, theres atleast one refinery operting here and more planned.

i have a small acerage and am putting it in hops. I hope to have a sellable crop in 2009(the AA might be a tad low first year) As I will not be a major grower I plan on selling all my hops to homebrewers online. I don't expect prices to drop to 2007 levels anytime soon even if theres a bumper crop. Demands is larger than supply and not alot of acerage is going to be planted anytime soon. All farmers are doing well right now. As a farmer i feel its about time. However the fact that the worlds poor will be suffering even more does bother me

I showed a friend how to brew this weekend and we decided on doing a California Common. I figured for the sake of showing my friend how simple it can be, I would just purchase an LD Carlson kit from LHBS. I figured this would be the easiest way to get some Northern Brewer without having to worry about if the LHBS had any in the fridge.

I was pretty upset to see they switched out the Northern Brewer for Cascade with a little piece of paper saying "Due to the global shortage..."

Here's an article I just found. It's nice to see that the growers are responding to the shortage. Of course, the hop yields will take two years to have an effect, but hope for the distant future is better than no hope at all!

And of course, this probably means that Washington apples will increase in price...hmmm, beer or apples, beer or apples...I think I'll go with beer.
