    Anyone Grow Hops?

    If anyone does grow hops then can you tell me if there is any way of increasing their bittering ability by feeding them something? Any ideas are welcome.

    If you could do that then there wouldn't be cultivars I'm guessing? Try a different model or more hippos earlier in the boil...

    Try pissing on the hops plants Pome.

    I believe it worked ok for Burt Munro's lemon tree.

    Cheers

    I would have thought more equals more bitterness.
    If you can wait till April I usually do a hunt with one of NZs top hop growers and if I don't get too pissed to remember I will ask him
    Munsey, stingray and POME like this.

    Cheers for the advise. I did double up the second time i used them and put the majority in at the start but didn't seem to make much difference. May have to splash out and try some other variety.
