I am looking for basic hops. Never have tried growing them, but sounds fun. I live here in iowa so the soil should be good. So I'm looking to buy some rhizomes, and start my own. Thanks Scott:mug:

Many people plant aroma or flavor hops, since you cannot measure the AA of the hops that you grow. Bittering with hops with an unknown AA can be tricky, but some nice aroma and flavoring hops would be nice to have in the yard!

I have some Mt Hood, Willamette and Cascade in my back yard.

+1-7/8:)
I got 50/50. Seems my bittering hops(Chinook, Chelan, and Galena) have the highest yields. So it leaves me having fun experimenting with high AA for low minute boils. The results can be quite pleasant.
