I think the most obvious answer is to grow your own, but my Zeus, Willamette, and Centennial only combine in so many ways. I've always been content with what I can get at my LBS, but I'd also be...

Least Time Consuming Chiller?

I've been thinking about upgrading from my immersion chiller to a plate or counter flow chiller to be faster. I'm less concerned about the time it takes to chill my wort, and more concerned about the...

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...

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. :(

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...

I'm pretty sure I get the visual, but the real question: what was the yield?

That goes for anyone else training your hops sideways: what's the yield?

I've been looking around a little more and it seems that around three bines per string is a reasonable number since too many per string will impede growth. I think I'll cut back to five per string...

If your hops are new, then a bit on the moist side will be good. If they are second year or older, try what I do: stick your finger in the soil all the way. If it is dry then they need water. If...

Are these first year hops or old? New rhizomes will need to be kept more wet than old growth plants, but daily sounds a bit much.

I like to water mine when the soil starts to dry out. There are a...

Just to add to what Tom777 said, the more extract that is in your boil for the full duration, the more likely you are to carmelize some extract. This can possibly effect final gravity, and of course...
