I got given a little "grow your own hops" gift

Postby MrBoy » Wed Dec 21, 2016 15:55

From secret santa I got a "Beermonster" thing, like you can get to grow your own venus fly trap but this has a pinch of hop seeds.

Am I realistically able to grow actual usable hops from this thing? I kit-brew so it would be used to dry-hop.

Depends on variety. If it's just ornamental then it's likely to be Golden Tassel which is no good for brewing.

FV:
Cond: Oatmeal Stout, US Amber
On MiniKeg: Dogbolter, Boadicea Bitter, Single Hop Boadicea, 1930's Stout
Bottled: Triple Stout, Salem Porter, Triple Stout '15, Exmoor Gold, Fuggles/EKG Bitter, APA, Foundryman's Gold, Whitbread 1905 XK, US IPA, Irish Stout, Autumn Mild, US Stout, SNPA, Summit IPA, Milk Stout, Jaipur

If have to check but it's definitely described with beer in mind

I got one of those, must have been at least 2 years ago. Never got round to growing it.
