    Hey Hunter all grainers

    , just thought I'd offer rather than throw them out.

    I planted 3 varieties of hops at the back end of last winter and subsequently they have grown heaps and I have surplus rhizomes to my needs for the coming spring. If anyone would like rhizomes I have them available. No charge maybe just a bottle or two of your finest on tap at the moment.

    Anyway I live at Waratah so pm me if you want any I have about 10 to give away.
    I currently have

    Columbus, Goldings and Cluster

    They didn't do brilliantly first year. There was enough for 1 30L batch ( I got 280g) in total but when wet you divide by 4t.

    Apparently the yield doubles every year for the first 3. Also I'm not amazing at the whole cutting of the rhizomes so won't make any promises as to guarenteed crop.

    And as a side note, I know this definately isn't optimal growing conditions as far as latitude goes but I thought it would be fun and I got to brew a wet hop ale.

    Pick up only, who know you might even get a beer out of me, no good drinking alone.

    Going very quickly I'll post when they are all accounted for. I also really should get out there and do some more digging and work out just how many I really do have. 10 would be a underestimate but there won't be many more.

    Hey HAGS (Hunter All Grain brewers), just dug out my garden and it appears I have a lot of rhizomes agian. If anyone wants one give me a pm.
    This was there 2nd season and they did well. Got 2 batches out of it this year as apposed to 1 last year.
    I have 3 columbus and 3 cluster. It will only cost you a bottle of your finest. In addition a little preface that they are a very tall growing vine that you will need to trelis or equivalent. Mine have grown to about 14 foot this year. Also the hunter is obviosuly not prime hop growing territiory also.

    Anyway if your keen pm me.
    Lee
