Posted in thread: Has anyone grown Neomexicana hops? on 03-31-2015 at 05:41 PM
This is what Todd had to say when I asked him why they were going to be in short supply this
year: "For now, let's just say that the neo's are exploring new latitudes, attitudes,
elevations, and incre...

I just saw this the other day and it looks like the hop extract is done with butter like some
folks do with the other green bud:

I've also seen references to the advice in that book and it really doesn't make much sense. In
the fall, the vines are in the process of dying back and no matter what you do, they'll
continue to die b...

I used to try this every year, I never got a single piece to take root. I propagate mine with

. . . No luck on rhizomes this year. I'll probably end up burying some bines to make some this

Posted in thread: Can I dig up and replant 3 year old hop plants? on 03-22-2015 at 07:44 PM
The original cuttings I received were from a fellow in Upstate NY back in the late 80's. The

location since a...

What you're talking about doing is the way rhizomes are harvested for sale. Once they're
harvested, cleaned and sorted, they are kept in cold storage until shipped. This is done before
the buds come o...

I agree with the others and also think that after 3 years, it's a good idea to dig up the

these and ha...
