Default Buying Hops in Vancouver

This is not an easy thing to do! I looked and looked and looked but to no avail. I even went as far as to order off the internet from crannogales fram or (crannogales.com) which have yet to be shipped. However, I was wondering through Dykhof Nurseries in North Van today and to my delight I stumbled upon Lupulus Nugget, A already big growing vine at that.

So thats where to go they only have 5 vines left.

Mow

In France it's the same thing... Very difficult to find hops... I bought in Germany but they had not many variety... And I search especially US variety...

I ordered two rhizomes from crannogales this spring. They have all the rhizomes dug up and they are being shipped this week.

I haven't yet either but I just planted them late Sunday afternoon though. When did your friend plant?

Good to hear that there are other homebrewers in Kelowna because I haven't met any yet!

I think he planted last Sunday. I think he said the centennial was the first one out of the ground.

We finally had a bit of sun in Vancouver and I have Nugget, Willamette and Cascade shoots poking out of the soil 11 days after planting. No sign of Mt Hood or the Centennial.

Default Looking for hops in Vancouver BC area

I see some of the earlier members have procured hops. I am very interested getting some, I need them for a home remedy. Please let me know if you have hops or know someone who does. Thanks
