    I think im going to do 4 bines total per plant, 2 per string and see what the yield is like.
    Thanks for the input.

    Sounds like a fine plan. It will give you an idea of how the hops grow for you.I have never
    heard that growth is dependent on variety, so I cannot speak to that. My issues have been
    regional, like tha...

    Yep. I have two strings for each plant and start with a total of 6-8 bines by triming out the
    first purple bull shoots and the weaker thin scrawny shoots. Seems to work for me. I have never
    had all fo...

    Fifth year on my plants and I am on the 3-4 bines per string side. Halfway up something always
    takes the top of one of the bines. If you only have one on a string, that is it for that

    So based on my setup ( two strings per trellis) and the 4 hops I am growing, Magnum, Cascade,
    Centennial, and Chinook should I play it safe and only grow one bine per string for a total of
    2 bines per...

    2-4 bines per plant. So 2 per string max.What varieties are you growing? More vigorous
    varieties will do fine with four bines per plant. Some of the less vigorous maybe only two
    bines should be used.M...

    Well I ended up adding a 0.5 ounce of simcoe for the final 4 days of the 5 day dry hop. I just
    kegged it last night and the aroma was outstanding - spicey, floral, citrusy, mango and hint of
    pine. Bee...

    Did this turn out well? How'd it age?Too sweet for my liking but definitely a nice alcohol
    warmth. Next time i plan to do a smaller batch with a 2 hour boil to get the volume down to
    roughly 3.5 gallo...

    Hi All,My hops are now in their second year and are starting to take off (see pics below). I
    plan to to tie my trellis twine and prune my hop plants this weekend and I had a couple of
    questions. In th...
