Thanks for all the great info.

At this time I have no plants and will not be picky on what I get. I plan to grow as many different varieties I can get. I want to try different ones. I have 2 acres so I have the room.

McKBrew, I will be at the ORV Trail Watch Booth at the Swapmeet if you want to come by and say hi. Hop plant clipping would be great if you can spare them.

That does seem odd. I don't see any official proclamation from the state of Washington, so that means it would be a self imposed ban by the existing growers?

Believe it or not, that's what they (SS Steiner) are telling me.

Oh, I'm not doubting you, Matt. It just seems odd that in a year when hop prices are down, they would volunteer to quarantine a potential product they could sell. I understand there are infestations of powdery mildew and possible other virus in the root stock, but that seems to be pretty prevalent.

Right on. I agree with you too, it is strange isn't it. IMO - its no secret that the diseases and pests are a natural part of living on this earth, their mono-crop practices leave them with an unnatural environment for these hops (like the rest of our industrialized ag world) - of coarse they have disease issues. Don't get me fing started.

Thank God for other rhizome suppliers like Freshops, Thymes, Gorst the local growers I know (around here) and others!

My post was actually related to shipping rhizomes in state, which unless things have changed many rhizome growers will still do.

I too am going to be buying rhizomes this year so this thread is great for us in Washington. I'm signed up for the email that Hops Direct sends out when they start selling.
On a weird note - I just got an email from Williams Brewing and they are selling rhizomes and it looks like they have NO restrictions on shipping to Washington???

http://www.williamsbrewing.com/HOP_RHIZOMES_FOR_PREORDER_C253.CFM

I found that a bit strange since I was under the impression that you cannot import hops from out of state but they only list 2 counties in Idaho that they cannot send them to.

Either way I think I'll be buying from HD.

Default Hop rhizomes from Yakima

Heya Ceg,

I live in Yakima, and recently joined the homebrewing club. It's a Yahoo club, if you're interested in looking into it.

Anywho, the club has a member who is selling/ordering some rhizomes soon, and will be taking orders next Thursday (2/18). I believe they're $2.90 apiece, and have the following varieties:

ascade
centennial
chinook
columbus
fuggle
glacier
golding
hallertau
horizon
nugget
tettnang
willamette

Man, I love living in Yakima.

Budger

I am guessing he is with the Yakima Brewers Club. They have a meeting next Thursday. I am thinking of going but I am not sure I can get a baby sitter yet.

"Man, I love living in Yakima. "
I think you're the only one
(A little humor from up north)

Ceg-
just make good friends with one of the local farmers and you'll have too many hops to brew with every year plus you'll have too many rhizomes to plant....if there is such a thing.
