Have you brewed with Cashmere before? I’m brewing a 2.5 gal cashmere smash in the next week or so. Curious your impressions.

If I like it, I may plant one this spring.

I have not, and this will be my first time growing hops. I’ve been a backyard gardner longer than I’ve been brewing so I figured I would try to diversify what I’m planting for some variety.

I've done a 5gal Cashmere smash and liked it very much. Let it condition for a couple weeks and the hop flavor will smooth out. Good with a twist of lemon!

Just pre-ordered a couple Brewer's Gold rhizomes and plan on grabbing a rhizome cutting from a buddy's Cascade that he's had going for 5 years or so once it gets a bit warmer.

Not planting anything new but looking forward to giving my 6 Cascade plants a full year of growth this year. Last year I had to fix the drainage in my planter beds and didn't get the hops planted until early summer. Still got some growth but I think this year will be a good haul.

6 cascades?! Whew, that’s a lot of one variety. Do you own a microbrewery?

No, just a big fan of Cascade, haha. But I do work part time for a 3 BBL brewery so if it's too much, maybe I can pawn some off to them and convince me to let me brew something up with them.

Can’t argue with that! I love my cascade plant. If they produce well, you could easily end up with 12-18 lbs of cascade. You will certainly be able to hook up them up.

Second year for 25 Crystal and 21 Hallertau. Expanding each to a row of 30, then adding a row of 30 Cascade and 2 rows of 30 Mt Hood for a total 150 plants. I have some work ahead of me.

I had to transplant my 5 plants last year now that I have a dog. I think I lost my Cascade and comet, but see shoots for the cashmere, glacier and Tahoma coming up now. Will be getting a new Cascade and hopefully a Zeus.
