Starting to grow Hops

Wed Mar 02, 2011 8:15 am

Hi guys.

I would like to start growing Hops in my back yard. I am renting a house now so I finally have lots of space in my back yard. I was on northernbrewer.com and they had a number of hop rhizome options.

I wanted to ask you guys what 6 hops you would grow?

www.nikobrew.com, just sayin.

We're closing on a house pretty soon, so I think I'm going to start a few myself. Personally I'm going to stick with one variety since they're all going to end up in the same brew & I like the idea of a single hop with fresh whole cones at the end. I started by considering CTZ, Cascade & Centennial, and finally decided on the CTZ's.

That would depend on where you are and what beers you tend to brew.

DAMN YOU!!! NBs magnum is sold out. But thanks for the reminder that Magnum is one that I want to add or replace in my garden.

EDIT: Found them at Adventures in Homebrewing!

Haha! If it's makes it any better I only ordered 2 magnums... I'm glad you were able to find them!

Unfortunately I also needed some StarSan and water treatments which wasn't available.
