Hello Bru,

Any chance you would be able share your Rhizome source, I am looking to acquire day neutral varieties like this one but supplier information is scarce.

Cheers

Randy

Thanks Bru...received PM and have sent email to Linda as suggested Now I will wait for reply and hopefully she is able to assist Do you have any growing specs for these hops such as slope grade tolerances, soil requirements, temperature ranges, etc... would be very helpful for my land assessment

Thanks Again for the help and would love to hear your opinion on the quality/characteristics of these hops...as you planted a few years ago now.

Cheers

I don't know man. Wild Yugoslavian males can be trouble.

LOL
I didn't plant rhizomes but Ive used the pellets.
I can't say I was overly impressed with the flavour and aroma. I'd suggest using it in a bittering role at 60mins only but thats just my opinion.

Some of our smaller brewers tend to boil Southern Promise for NO more than 30min....
SA Hop Farms also have a pre-isomerized peller (PIH). Personally I do not like it... The bitterness it provides is harsh & acrid with a "chemical" taste...

I found that as well. Im going to try it again in a cream ale with low IBU. SAB uses it (and Saaz supposedly) with reasonable success.

SAB farms will no longer sale their Southern Promise Rhizomes. I have a small hop farm and would like to give some of the day neutral varieties a shot. Does anybody have any other sources to get these rhizomes?
