Who will go pee on their hops?

I just got my 4 year old daughter to pee on my cascade hops with me. Does this make me a bad parent or totally awesome?

Question: Why are you peeing on your hops?

Please tell me these will not be used to make beer!

good parent? I personally would not teach my daughter to pee outside. Me? I don't pee directly on my hops, but I do give them a nice dose of bottled pee in the springtime.

1 vote: Bad parent!
Just kidding. :shock:
I did a little digging on this a nd found a few things. The thing I found first was about how hop harvesters would be paid by weight of a hop gas. Some of the dirty hop pickers, as they were known, peed on the hops to weigh the bags down a bit.http://www.eugenemagazine.com/archive/s ... ature3.asp
I also found this one http://www.helpfulgardener.com/phpBB2/v ... hp?p=95772.
Its not about hops, but it is about vegetables and other goodies and it is a pretty silly discussion about urine and plants.

I would like to make a request.

Would everyone here who pees on their hops, please post the name of your Brew Club.
I just want to know which clubs to avoid on club night come NHC!
