Hello again

 

Is there anyone here living in Auckland who grows their own hops? I am currently growing four different types (no idea what though) and would be keen to do a "hop swap" at some point once they start to take off. I'm pretty sure one of my hop plants is a Hallertau, but then again I can't say for sure. Also, is there any way of knowing for sure?

 

Cheers. :)

yep keen to swap ive got a random one aswell plus a smooth cone you can take cuttings from the bines i think

 

im just south of akl
Thanks Chad - I'm keen to do a swap once they've grown a few more shoots. Have you brewed with your hops? And yes, I think the majority of my hops are some kind of smooth cone variety. I have no idea how to determine what kind they are..

Hey Chad

Sorry for the late reply! Yeah totally keen to swap hops with you. Mine have only just started sprouting though, I've already taken a cutting of one but am waiting for it to grow roots. Soon as I plant it we'll do a swap eh?

I have rooted cuttings of Smoothcone and Mystery German if anybody in Akl wants some.

I'm still on the lookout for Danscade, but haven't found anybody up here yet who has that variety available.

I'd be keen to exchange cuttings for some beer if you're interested.  Sorry I can't swap for some Danscade but keen to get into growing hops if I can. 

You can have the cuttings for free - these plants are so aggressive that that I've got cuttings coming out of my ears (so to speak...).  PM me with your details and I'll arrange to drop them off.

Thanks Cascade - PM about to be sent.
