    The only testing I ever had done was a deal I had going with a fellow at OSU a long time ago
    who did alpha, beta and HSI on a few samples but have heard good things about Kar. Some growers
    I know in M...

    I spoke to someone at Oregon State a few years ago who was looking for seeds from feral hops
    from across the US. If I can find his contact information, would it be ok to put him in touch
    with you if h...

    Nice job, even showing the battle scars!! Many of those pics look a lot like the stuff I've
    found over the years based on the cone structure and the laterals. They threw lots of cones and
    the laterals...

  • Posted in thread: Two questions about hops, contamination and fermentation on 09-02-2015 at 02:37 PM
    They do lots of stuff but just can't seem to keep yeast from multiplying: a search for
    something like 'antimicrobial humulus' and a bunch more articles will come up for you to check

  • Posted in thread: Are these hops ready or past their prime? on 08-30-2015 at 11:20 PM
    Essentially, it would always be nice to have something to compare the aroma to though. Usually
    when it gets near harvest, it's a good idea to take a few cones and peek under the petals to
    check and se...

  • Posted in thread: Are these hops ready or past their prime? on 08-30-2015 at 10:16 PM
    Are they past their prime or should they hang a little longer? What they look like and what
    they smell like may yield very different conclusions. Have you mashed a few up and rubbed them
    between your ...

    There's a way to do it using glycerin. I ran into this guy in the early 90's at the CBC in
    Boston where he had preserved whole hop vines.

  • Posted in thread: Hop drying question. on 08-26-2015 at 03:20 AM
    If they haven't molded, you might be able to. A lot of times, folks feel the cones after
    they've been drying for a while and they feel nice and crunchy so they think they're done. Most
    of the moisture...

  • Posted in thread: Question about hop harvesting article on 08-21-2015 at 06:46 PM
    I think what they're getting at is that if it smells either like grass or onion, you're either
    too early or too late, in between and you're good to go.

    Last night we stopped by the yard with the 2-year-olds. They are loaded with cones. I am very
    excited about the prospects of getting these analyzed.Way cool! How detailed are you going to
    get with ana...
