Even here in Oklahoma, where as far as i know no one has ever in their craziest dreams thought of producing hops. I'm a student at the University of Tulsa and I checked in the Herbarium to see if there were any collections and sure enough there were. It took me about an hour before i found this stand of decent size. I plan on harvesting as much as i can when they are ready and titrate the Alpha Acid content (anyone can do this without a lab, although as a new graduate student i have access to stuff that makes it easier).
Then i'll use them in a beer! As a late addition, but in grotesque quantities. I'll be keeping everyone posted.
