Thanks for sharing, I haven't seen that particular piece before. I'll have to print it out after work and give it a read.

Hop breeding is an interesting subject. I know several people involved in the OSU High-alpha program. Seems AA breeding is science, but aroma is more random. Who would guess Cascades is a Fuggles-Fuggles cross?
