Brewing: Growing Hops - The rhizomes are here!

See what happened next -> Site cleared and soil prepared.
So we ordered some hop rhizomes about a week ago from Northern Brewer. The picture on the left is of the hop rhizomes. On the right a picture of what hop cones look like after the plant is full grown. Hopefully they have arrived in time for us to get them in the ground. I wonder if they will actually produce anything this year. Time to do some research and call upon my friends/family with green thumbs :-) Bryan has given me a head start by sending me a podcast from Basic Brewing about growing hops at home. Whoohoo...this is so cool! Here's a list of what we purchased.
  • Willamette
  • Hallertau
  • Chinook
  • Cascade
