so, i posted before that i got some hops of unkown origin from a coworker of mine. they seriously didn't like being transplanted, but i had a hop-growing friend of mine come help, and we ended up just salvaging the whole plant into several rhizomes, 2 of which are now happily growing.
backstory complete, now for the question:
as i mentioned, these are unknown hops. i do know there are "ornamental" varieties and "brewing" varieties. if the cones look like hops, and smell like hops, i should be able to brew with them, right? or is there something about ornamentals that might not be immediately obvious that would make them bad for brewing with?
