  • Posted in thread: Ideas for Hop Growth in a very small yard on 03-05-2015 at 04:47 AM
    One last option is to drive a length of pipe into the ground next to the crown and lash a pole
    to it. The hops climb up the training string onto the pole and when you want to harvest (or
    check for mat...

    I think that when a new variety is released (or newly re-released 'old variety'), their flavor
    and aroma characteristics are determined by a panel made up of a bunch of folks with really
    good palates ...

  • Posted in thread: Wild planting hops Johnny Appleseed style? on 03-01-2015 at 07:28 PM
    So, my thinking changed quite a bit. Now I'm more apt to put weed killer on a wild hop than
    propagate it.Digging is a much more effective way to remove/eradicate them. Once you get the
    main portion of...

    They're in VERY limited supply this year, if you can find any at all. Also, from what I'm
    hearing is that folks growing them in areas that get a decent amount of rainfall aren't having
    any luck with t...

    I'd keep an eye on that brewer. If he sorts out and keeps the best shoots for himself, he may
    be doing that with his beer also . . .?

    If they are, they will most likely be from an "ornamental" variety with no real brewing
    potential. I don't understand your statement, but then again, I'm not a geneticist? The two
    ornamental varietie...

    It's still not too late. Before the snow's all melted you can just pile a bunch of leaves,
    straw or whatever you can find on top of them to create the desired effect. Actually, an idea
    just popped! Yo...

    It's interesting seeing the diversity of the root systems of the newcomers! These were moved
    last fall.

    Homer, if you mulch them really heavy with like 10 inches of mulch, you'll have 10 inches of
    chlorotic, tender shoots. Once they poke through and see the sunlight they begin to get tough
    and 'hairy' a...

  • Posted in thread: Beers seem overly bitter on 02-22-2015 at 09:22 PM
    I don't know what type of recipe or guidelines you brew from, but the very first thing I did
    when I started out was to back off on the bittering hops a little? Everyone's brewing set up is
    a little di...
