First year hop grower here with a question. I've been reading conflicting info and just need to be clarified. I have planted 8 hop crowns, all are producing 4-6 bines each, tallest being around 8 inches so far. I've read to choose the strongest bine from each plant and train to the wire. I've also read to let all of the bines grow to full potential the first couple years. My question, being that I planted crowns and not rhizomes do I still let all the bines grow? If so do I train all the bines to grow vertically? Thanks, just want to do it all the right way.
In their efforts to regulate beer quality, the ancient Babylonians, who were among history's earliest brewers, decreed that any commercial beermaker who sold unfit beer would be drowned in their own libation.
