Default Anyone know of a good book about growing your own hops

So i am thinking of growing my own hops either next year or the year after but i need a book. I have loooked at a couple but idk if they are really what im looking for. I dont really care about the history of the hops- if its in there great- but what im really looking for is a book thats more of a how to book more than anything else. For example: what kind of soil you need, how much water, how long before you can pluck them, things like that. Does anyone know of a good book about this. I dont need a short and consise book but a detailed book.

Buy this


It has info on things like Barley and some other herbs too which dont matter but the section on hops is really good and covers taking care of the plants and pest control.
