Hey All, I just got my rhizomes in the mail today along with my "The Homebrewer's Garden" book. I am going to start my rhizomes inside and get them going so they get a nice early start on the season. This will be my first attempt at growing hops so I am not expecting to get a big yield this year. I am only starting two bines this year. I figure I can start small and use this year as a chance to get the feel for growing these and next year I will try and do like six bines or so. I am going to start these in pots and use dowel rods so I can run a string from the top of the rod down to the soil so the hops have something to wind around. I'll update later with some pictures.
I am 33 years old I have been brewing for about 12 years now. I love all styles of beer but I have a serious obsession with Belgian Ales and sour beer. For all of you gmail users, I am always online and love chatting beer. Feel free to hit me up with any questions or ideas concerning brewing or my blog.
