Cascade, Chinook, & Centennial please.

Centennial seems hard to come by. I got 24oz, but am not sure it will be enough.

I couldn't get Centennial for my last recipe, had to substitute Cascade... Seems that there is plenty Cascade.
I'd second the Centennial planting.

Cheers

He/she would want them for $2 an ounce or less

Some fancy hops from here: New Zealand Hops Limited - Supplier of hops, commercial brewing supplies, home brewing supplies, spray free and organic Bio-Gro hops

I would love to be the first kid on the block with Nelson Sauvin, Motueka, Riwaka, Pacifica, Green Bullet, or Pacific Jade. I doubt that they would part with the rhizomes but they are fellow organic growers so you might have an in. Birds of a feather and all that.


Side note, you may be interested in this contest that I throw each year here in Boise. I am a pretty big proponent of organic brewing.

One of the growers in New Zealand is aware of my project.They will protect their proprietary stock to the death (and they should). They lost the kiwi market.I am going to find out what compares to their varieties.As they were all breed from known stock.They should be starting harvest very soon. I am interested in your contest. Will be coming through Boise in the next few weeks will try to look u up Cheers Glen

simcoe, amarillo, summit, summit, summit, centennial, crystal.

those 7 are my choice


but really, it is hard to find crystal and summit ever. come august im sure amarillo and simcoe will be obsolete like last year...

ohh, how bout "citra"
no idea where you would get rhizomes. but the only beer i have had made with em is excellent.
