    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
    springtime root prunings, I almost never have one fail.Did you cut them first or something?
    Basically you ...

    . . . No luck on rhizomes this year. I'll probably end up burying some bines to make some this
    season .That's probably the easiest/most fool proof way of propagating hops. Have you done this
    before?

  • Posted in thread: digging up and replanting hop rhizomes on 03-22-2015 at 08:46 PM
    If you're going to grow them in pots, I would suggest putting them in a bigger pot from the
    start. Not saying that you can't do it (they really don't seem to mind), but what you usually
    run into is a ...

  • 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
    crown(s) have been dug up and moved several times since then and it's been in it's current
    location since a...

  • Posted in thread: digging up and replanting hop rhizomes on 03-22-2015 at 07:32 PM
    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...

  • Posted in thread: Can I dig up and replant 3 year old hop plants? on 03-22-2015 at 03:28 AM
    I agree with the others and also think that after 3 years, it's a good idea to dig up the
    entire crown and trim it back anyway. If they're growing in a good environment, they become a
    real pain to man...

  • Posted in thread: Rhizomes vs Roots? on 03-16-2015 at 03:27 PM
    The rhizomes are usually found within the top 6 inches of the soil and have rings of buds about
    every 4-6 inches along them (these are what are used to replant). The roots are found below
    these and ha...

  • Posted in thread: Has anyone made distilled hop oil? on 03-14-2015 at 03:32 AM
    Steam distillation. Lots of homebrew shops are selling stills now-a-days that can handle all
    sorts of plant material, along with other stuff. Or you could buy it already prepared like the
    product Fres...
