After reading about it, it sounds like it would be handy for growing just not very handy for brewing.

Yeah that's not going to work hops need way more space for growing and way more space for the roots.

Do It!
Your only risk is the $5 for the rhizome. The topsy thing can always be re-purposed for tomatoes...

or "Tomatoes "

If only produces a couple of ounces, then make one batch with all of 'em an call it your windowsill IPA. Plus, if the plant struggles along for a few years, trying to grow, but hampered by harsh conditions, then it will be ready to take off running when you eventually move to a place with dirt.

I like the way you think Germey. I will give it a try. If anything other than the expected (failure) happens, I will let you know.

In the topsy turvey commercials they use the same plant for two (or is it three) different families.


This is what happens when you pause with the DirecTv HDR.
