Default Hops Resources

I do not know much about growing hops but a friend of mine was curious so I gathered what seemed to be the best information available. Here are the links that I came up with. Feel free to add additional resources.

Here's a general overview of hop growing: http://brewingtechniques.com/library/backissues/issue2.3/montell.html

This page has more in-depth information: http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/afcm/hop.html

This one is even more thorough: http://www.crannogales.com/HopsManual.pdf

This is a hop-growing forum with lots of good info and potential contacts for rhizomes: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Grow-Hops/

Here are a few retail sources for rhizomes:

For Canadians, http://www.crannogales.com/farm.html

They are grown about a 120k from me and saves you the 15 fee freshops charges Canadians.


I may not be an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express........ 6 months ago.
