(replying to thread necromancer - bringing this from the dead)

I think hops want extended daylight at some point, which is why they are often grown in northern climates (14+ hour days during June and July). I don't know if the days in Venezuela are ever long enough. They also suffer from mildew when the humidity is too high but newer varieties are more resistant. I don't know if you live in a humid area of Venezuela.

There are people who grow hops in some awfully warm areas so that's probably not an issue. Keep them well watered and fertilized and hope for the best. I am afraid you may end up with enormous bines but no cones without long days though.

I have found Cascade to be a pretty useful hop, hardy, and high-yielding...but I live in Wisconsin, so our climates couldn't be much more different.

Yes, that *is* beer. Water, malt, hops, and yeast mean it's beer. Go ahead and try a glass...
