Growing your own hops can be a fun and rewarding process, and it adds a fresh twist to your beer! Don't wait to order, as rhizomes are only harvested once per year and sell fast. Hop Rhizomes are the tiny roots that are cut off from a mature female hop plant, and can be used to grow an entire new hop plant. For best results, hop rhizomes should be planted immediately after delivery, and should be kept cold and moist until planted. Rhizomes should be planted approximately 5 feet (3 feet for identical hops) apart to prevent the vines from tangling once they've grown, and should be covered with about 1" of soil (a soil pH of 6.0 - 8.0 is preferred). Be sure to water your rhizomes regularly, as they have a small root system, but be sure to not over-water them, as that may cause the rhizomes to rot.
A lot of great things came out of the 80's. We think one of the best was Chinook hops, but as brewers that seems about right. This is a high alpha variety with a spicy, pine, citrus aroma and flavor. Think of it like being on top of a mountain in Florida complete with the bitterness you've..getting off topic here. Chinook offers smooth bitterness in American Ales, American Pale Ales, IPA, and American Lagers.
