Growing Hops: Harvest - Time To Meet Your Maker

- What happened next? - Read about Brewing an IPA with Fresh Hops - The Yeast Starter - So where are we in the "Grow Your Own Hops" journey? Well its harvest time! We smelled them, tasted them, threw them in some beer and well just stood there amazed. I just picked up the ingredients for the IPA these will be added to :-) Here's a recap. I grew four types of hops Willamette, Chinook, Cascade and Centennial. The cascade was the only one that produced this year. We were very happy to get anything at all. Check out the journey -> Growing Hops

Harvested by hand and headed for a homebrew!

5 oz of fresh Cascade hops.

Hello : I live in Nova Scotia and have a property on the Minas Basin, what type of Hops would best grow in this area?
