After tending to the garden and writing the blog earlier today I checked Craigslist and found someone was giving away free rhizomes of hops!
Thanks to Bill of Lakeside, I got a rhizome of Cascade hops & 1 Mt. Hood Hops rhizome. Being that I do not know much about making beer at this point other then I know what beers I like and which I don't. So, I did a little research:
Derived from a cross between fuggles and the Russian hop
Alpha Acid: 4.5-7% Beta Acid: 4.5-7%
Aroma: Pleasant, flowery and spicy, citrus-like.
Used For: Good for flavor and aroma, but an acceptable bittering
hop. Ales and lagers
Aroma variety with similarities to the German Hallertau and
Hersbrucker varieties, released in the U.S. in 1989.
Alpha Acid: 5-8% Beta Acid: 5-7.5%
Aroma: Mild, pleasant, clean, light, and delicate.
Used For: Aroma and flavor. American and German ales and lagers.
I found this information here: http://brewery.org/library/Hopprofs0497.html
Personally, I am excited, next year I could be harvesting hops for my own brew! Now the big question, where to put it in the garden!?
