    Hi, my name is Bucky and I am a transplanter...So anyway, I was searching old threads for what
    to do with transplanting since I am moving on June 1. There were all kinds of advice, do it,
    don't do it,...

    Hi, I am in the Madison area, which is a pretty short shot down to Janesville. I have cascade,
    but I would be interested in the Golding, if you haven't given it away yet. Let me know how to
    get a hold...

    Well, this is my lesson in patience and a lesson for those that can't see below the ground. I
    planted 3 kinds of hops this summer Cascade, Nugget and Centennial. The Cascade and Nugget
    'blew up' so to...

    Hey BlackJaque - I am not from The Rapids, but I have spent a lot of time in Nekoosa, and The
    WI Rapids area (recreation), and one guess might be super sandy soil. I know that is a very
    sandy part of ...

    Yes, natefrog, just do it. I am a first timer outside the Madison area (very close to Gorst
    Valley actually), and I bought 'starts' from a neighbor that had established plants. The
    'starts' were alrea...

  • Posted in thread: Do second harvests happen? on 09-01-2012 at 03:55 AM
    I just fininshed off the second harvest off the 2nd year Chinook plant and it yielded approx 19
    oz wet the second time around. Not bad considering I got almost 24 oz the 1st time a month ago.
    I dried ...

  • Posted in thread: Are my hops ready? on 09-01-2012 at 01:29 AM
    they still smell like grass, but again, break em open and they are everything you think of
    hops being... so I am still unsure if I should use them or pitch 'em, what do you think? Here
    is a pick of t...

  • Posted in thread: 2012 hops harvest on 08-31-2012 at 02:22 PM
    First year 'starts' report. In south central WI, with reported 'extreme drought' conditions

  • Posted in thread: First cascade harvest...wow on 08-31-2012 at 02:12 PM
    I hate to break it to ya- you'll get maybe 1-2 oz dried...use em as a wet hop aleThat is not
    true. There is a 70-80% weight loss from water. So if you conservatively have 3 lbs. (48 oz.)
    you will end ...
