Kinda startling.
Could've just subscribed to it if all he wanted was a bookmark...

Cheers!

Startling? this is the internet! two girls one cup was startling, bumping a long dead thread? nope, everyday occurance.

I agree subscribing would have worked, but then we wouldn't be having this interesting e-conversation now would we?

cheers!!

This gave me a chuckle.

+1 for Amarillo. I did a single hop IPA with it before the price skyrocketed. Even a year later I have a few bottles left. It has mellowed very nicely into a strong pale ale of sorts.

Interesting....
I found this little number in the details of applying for a plant patent: "The invention would not have been obvious to one skilled in the art at the time of invention by applicant. "
I mean...I don't know anything about crossbreeding plants, or how they created Amarillo, but isn't it essentially the same, just crossing specific hops?
I could see the patent falling under that rule making it invalid.
IDK much about the business world, or politics, but in my heart I know homebrewers should be allowed to grow Simcoe, Amarillo, Columbus, whatever plant they want!!

It's a sticky situation, to be sure. I mean who really owns the rhizomes? Trespassing is trespassing, and if someone chooses to not sell something from their property, by gum it's their right!
It's not like rhizomes are flying away in the wind, the only way to get your hands on them would be to:
1. Crossbreed a similar strain yourself
2. Trespassing
Crossbreeding a strain would be legal, though you couldn't use a trademarked name for it. And it's probably pretty damn difficult AFAIK.

So, in researching, I've come to the conclusion while it sucks, it's their right to not sell a way to reproduce something they created, and it would be illegal to trespass and steal it.
But for aspiring hop growers, feel free to do your best to emulate the properties.

And I'd like to say thank you to all the hop growers who do offer their rhizomes for sale!

Can't help but wonder, since this thread has been necro-posted, if it's patented, or proprietary. There are big differences and in many ways, the legal protections for proprietary stuff is stronger than for patented stuff.

It's wonderful to have these patented strains and blends. Do the patents ever expire like they do on medicines?
