    Wood will eventually rot. You can install plastic rhizome barrier normally used to contain
    bamboo. Standard depth is 30" with a few inches left above ground. Not sure if it will work for
    hops but I im...

    If you've been squeezing the bag daily, I think a week is plenty personally.

    A lot of variables can affect the flavor/aroma of your homegrown hops. One of the biggest, and
    most difficult to get a handle on, is when to harvest. It's really more of an art than science.
    Too soon,...

    Ok I live in western kansas we get about 2 to 3 weeks of single didgit lows and teens for the
    highs. Do you think I will have winter kill on the roots if I just leave my planter above
    ground. Or shoul...

    I had some centennial pop up. Cut them back tho. We might be having a warm winter in the PNW
    but it's still too early.

    Thanks damdaman, I will put it on my window sill. Is there a shelf life?OUT of direct sunlight,
    not IN direct sunlight. :)

    You might be able to ferment in terracotta. I wouldn't age it though. The thing about
    terracotta is that is breathes; it allows gas exchange with the environment. For fermentation
    this could work to y...

    Just keep it out of direct sunlight and don't mix it with water yet and it should be fine at
    that temp. Honey is a natural preservative, the bees actually use their wings to evaporate out
    just enough ...

  • Posted in thread: Dry hopping with your home grown beauties on 02-10-2015 at 07:39 PM
    I won't use my homegrown hops for dry hopping anymore. I lost two batches from it. I disagree
    with the oft-repeated idea that "hops are naturally anti-bacterial so you don't have to
    worry."When I go u...
