It is that time of year when homebrewers who grow their own hops start to get excited. I am one of those people. I caught the hop addiction about four years ago, and I caught it bad. Humulus Lupus seemed like such an appealing plant to grow when the hop shortage really first got going. Hops are easy to grow; put the rhizome in the ground, provide it with rich soil, and vertical space to climb, and you will have hops within the first two to three years. Four years into this addiction and I now have thirteen varieties of hops. They are still fun to grow, but the glamour is starting to wear off a little bit. So this brings me to the main point of this post, any readers who might want to try growing your own Humulus Lupus plants should contact me privately through e-mail. Autonomyacres@gmail.com. Send me a line and we can work something out. As of right now I have Goldings and lots of Hallertau available. In the next couple of days I should have a few more varieties split up and ready to go. Hops are fun to grow and home brewing is even more fun with a home-grown ingredient. Give it a try.
