Catching Up - Bill's Hops
I posted last year about the harvest, here, and then I brewed two batches of a "Harvest Black IPA" with the hops - posts here and here.
They are second-year plants, mounted on a trellis in his backyard, and get good day-long sun from the south. They have about 8-feet of run to the top of the set-up there, and they bridge across on support lines when they reach the top of the structure. He's had great success with them, and as the photo shows, they've already set cones - they look ready for harvest!
I hope to be able to stop by to check them out this coming weekend. In the meantime, I better brush off that IPA recipe!
