    I have found feral or naturalized hops growing in the chehalis valley near the outskirts of old hop growing farms that date to 1915

    Would anybody be interested in spreading the genetics as it being from preprohibotion plants that have been able to cope with powdery mildew and possibly have been reproducing via seed

    I am in the process of trying to auto order Hops in the BruControl software, This is a fun challenge for me and of course I could do it manually, but where is the fun in that? From BeerSmith, you can bring over 8 hops. This may not be a limit but the Node Red code (@RiverCityBrewer ) we have...

    Rice Lager Hop

    Hi! Looking for a good hop for a rice lager that is preferably not sorachi ace. Last time I used hallertau mittlefrau. It was good. Looking for another one. I put in 1.5 ounce at 60 then 1 to 1.5 at 5mins normally. Want crisp, clean rice lager expression. What’s the best hop for the occasion?

    American hop combos

    I’m no noob, but primarily brew German beers. Lately, I’ve been drifting toward classic American pale ale and a few west coast IPAs. I’m well acquainted with noble hops and English varieties. Not a fan of the juicy hops that taste like fruit, though. Outside of Amarillo, cascade, centennial, and...

    I'm growing hops for the first time. I have multiple varieties and most have reached the top wire. Instead of stopping, they have now started to climb along the wire. Should I just let them be or should I trim them to stop the from continuing? My thought is that trimming the top would make the...

    Pruning hops

    So at the beginning of the season I cut back all but 5 shoots from each plant, and now they are about 10 feet tall already here in Ohio.

    Cloning Licher Bier (German Pils)

    A little over 2 years ago, I wrote an email to the Licher Brewery to try to get their input on brewing a Pils similar to Licher Pils. For anyone who has been stationed in Germany, or just visited you might have had this tasty beer! This is the response I got from them: "thank you for your...

    NEIPA Hops?

    To brew a killer NEIPA, one needs big, juicy hop aromas and flavors. I have heard a few brewers describe what they call "base" or "dominant" or "banger" hops that form the structure and big flavor that the other hops can layer upon. Examples: Citra Mosaic Simcoe Galaxy Strata Nelson Sauvin...
