We've only been in Charleston since January, but we have three year old Willamette, Kent and Cascade plants that are doing ok right now. Hops tend to not like the heat as much, but ya never know.

Keep in mind wherever you plant them, their roots like to grow out more than down. So, don't plant them where you have other plants you want to keep. They'll rule to ground.
Ours are in self-watering 5 gallon containers. This has definitely kept them smaller than we'd hoped, but we don't want to plant them directly in the ground until we find a house to buy.

Another local in the West Ashley area. Have a pumpkin ale I need to bottle this weekend. Would like to get into kegging soon, bottling is for the birds...

Oh I wish I had the setup to keg. But until then I've got > 300 bottles to keep rotating through. I kind of feel like a hoarder.

Where do you guys ordered your supplies from? I've been going through midwest, but was wondering if there was a better online source.

I usually order from austinhomebrew.com. if you buy a kit it ships free. and they don't charge you ridiculous amounts for shipping like midwest and northern brewer do. I'm also in west ashley. where are you jcioni?

Thanks, I'll check them out. Yeah Midwest does like to charge a lot for shipping. I'm in Carolina Bay, just built a house in there recently.
