Default Wild bavarian hops from germany!

I just moved to germany and there are a bunch of wild hops growing eight near my place. Just harvested a bunch yesterday. Strong citrus and grass notes with a hint of mint as well as a musky blackberry scent. They're growing near an old garden community so I suspect they may be great strains for authentic german-style kolsch or pilsner. There's more here than I can use myself so send me a message if you're interested and I can send you some.

Can send pics via email: luke (dot) giveen (at) gmail

that's a very generous offer! but be aware that you won't be allowed to send them to the US, or just about any country outside of the EU. you would need an agricultural import permit, which isn't worth obtaining for a pound of hops. well, you could send them but they'd likely be stopped by US customs.
What hops should I grow? Looking for cheap honey?

Drinking: black harvest ale (wet-hopped with homegrown hops), local sour cherry kriek, oud bruin, gueuz'ish thing, saison bottled with ECY34
Fermenting/carbing: IPA w/ HBC-438 (thanks vinnie!), 2x saison w/ 3726, Ardennes BDSA
Aging: witbier with brett, TYB saison brett blend, Tripel'ish with brett, sour cherry mead, rye sour ECY20/ECY34 split, several other sours, acerglyn, and probably some stuff i've lost track of...
