    I have a well established hops crown in the back yard.My wife and I are moving and I would like
    to take some of it with us. I will be in Limbo this winter, what do you recommend I do? Can I

    Bayoubilly, I would first try to speak to someone at Rutgers, they're doing much of the legwork
    for you: Next, there's a bunch of interviews with folks who are involved with hops back in
    this part o...

    It ended up putting out a few ounces short of a pound with some nice cones and good vigor. The
    raspberry aroma is still present at harvest but won't be able to verify that it will transfer
    to a beer u...

  • Posted in thread: Just dug up some rhizomes. Now what? on 09-18-2016 at 05:15 PM
    Believe it or not, I found my first wild ones right about this time of the year just a few
    miles west of Rochester . . . back in '86 or '87. I took a big chunk of rhizome (make sure
    there's a bunch of...

    [QUOTE=WilliamSlayer;7709993My Cascade cones lupulin are still a bit more "sunshine yellow"
    than the Chinook, so I am going to hold off on harvesting it until at least next weekend.
    Still, the Cascade...

    Some folks who have superior olfactory abilities say they can smell the hop oils just by being
    near the cones. Myself and many others can't so it's recommended to physically bust open the
    lupulin glan...

    Could be that they're just gypsies so maybe buy from a more professional looking site?
    Unfortunately, gypsies can make things look professional while still being gypsies. I just look
    at random seedlin...

    Why would you assume that seeds ordered online would be ornamental? By the way, the first ones
    I ever found were growing somewhere out in the Hamilin/Hilton/Spencerport area.

  • Posted in thread: Found Wild Hops, Now What? [pics] on 09-06-2016 at 05:34 PM
    I started growing back in the late 80's and have used 'wild' hops from different locations over
    the years with really poor outcomes, mostly garlic. Having access to them is critical in order
    to harves...

    If it's a single layer it may only take a few days, depending on the humidity. Again, it takes
    time to get it right. You want the strig to START to firm up, then cut off the drying. If it
    gets too fir...
