That's messed up. I'm friends with the family (Gamache) that have the rights to that hop. I figure if you can produce a unique product then go ahead and make money off of it. I'm guessing the whole commando thing is BS since I've been flying for this family for a few years and I can't even see what fields the Amarillo grows in but I'm not not calling you a liar

Yeh, If I went through the trouble of cross pollenating some new hops strain, and then got it patented, I wouldnt want some dude jumping my fence and stealing from my hop yard.

Much respect to the guy who created it - CentralWA, if you really know them, let them know that Amarillo is my single favorite of all hops. I have made only a one batch without it* since I first tasted it a couple of years ago.

*The one going into the bottle this weekend, made with only my own home grown hops.

There are no fences, but good luck finding which field is which

Yeah, I know the family pretty well and a lot of people agree with you.

Why not tissue culture the leafs? It's easily done and don't have to worry about some guy chasing you across a field with a shot gun just for a little rhizome. Even if the leaf is dried out. It's still possible to kick start it in a heavy nutrition media to grow it.

I think my buddy is full of BS too I would never steal rhizomes, that is just bad beer karma. Just one of those drunken rambling conversations.....
