How do You guys go about getting State certificates for the Hops?

For L/S...Seeds Ect?

Well, I dont. But then I'm not the one doing it, like I said I'm a lowly neighbor. There are numerous hop farms sprouting here in CO so I don't believe any regulations are a problem, but I really have no idea. I don't even know what L/S is, seeds? what seeds?

In WA and OR, the state departments of agriculture do an analysis on every lot of hops that come off the farms for leaf & stem percentage (L/S) and seed content. (If male hops are near to the females, the cones of the female plant will get pollenated and produce seeds.)

Thanx for that info, hopefully he's looked into all that, I'm just happy to have so many hops so close to me, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Wolf is a good machine, but the one that I have (wolf 180) I have modified drastically to be more efficient and less wastefull. I find it is also dificult to work on as it is a very compact machine. Apart from that, for my set up, it is too small and I am in the process of buying a larger machine.
