    Just want to plug the new home brew store in Lafayette, Colorado. The owner, George, is a nice
    guy with a good inventory, especially for just opening up. I got tired of one of the other
    stores in the ...

    I'll cut back anything near the ground, and train or trim anything that is trying to encroach
    on neighboring plants (different variety), but other than that I let the side arms do what the
    want. Of co...

    I'll second what Brent said, but also don't stress over what you do too much. They are pretty
    hearty plants.Semi off topic example: Hi Brent! Here's a picture of the Centennial you gave me
    a few years...

    Colorado may be on fire, the air may smell like a camp fire, and this hot & dry year has been
    lousy for staying cool, but I have never harvested hops this early! cut down my Zeus (middle
    pot), and I ...

    Don't worry too much about rooting hormones/compounds. I've cut off 6"-24" hops shoots and had
    them spit out roots after a week or two in just water.Sorry to hear about your new rhizomes. :(

  • Posted in thread: Hops Growing Problems on 06-18-2010 at 02:54 PM
    Depending on the soil they are in, the fact that they stopped growing might be a sign that you
    need more fertilizer/plant food. Hops are hungry and pull up a lot of nutrients. But as they
    are first ye...

  • Posted in thread: Does anyone want some cuttings? on 06-18-2010 at 02:50 PM
    I thought I'd bump this in case anyone else might want some hops right now. Turbosnail came and
    got some, I hope they are doing alright in his yard. Until I can convince any more of my
    friends that th...

  • Posted in thread: Another bug post on 06-18-2010 at 02:45 PM
    I have a fair bit of those bugs on my hops, too. The good news is I also have lady bugs all
    over my hops. Last year I used soap to keep bugs down, but I haven't done anything yet this
    year. I don't wa...

  • Posted in thread: EZ Cap Bottles lose all carbonation upon chilling on 06-04-2010 at 12:19 AM
    Just to keep the old thread going, I also have given up on swing tops from the home brew store.
    The dozen I got had problems with at least half of them. I tried bending the wire bales,
    getting new gas...
