I have planted these rhizomes for a few years now. This is the first time they have began to sprout hop cones. I don't know what I was previously doing wrong or what I might be doing right this time but here they are.
They will most likely become potpourri in the fall.
New Session IPA is in the fermenter.
Gravity looks good at 1.053. That's just where I want it.
I think pushing it lower would make it tough to get a good balance.
And balance is needed, even in an IPA.
Good beer to you.
