Alsace Hops 2012

August 14, 2012

I’m giving the brewing a bit of rest until Autumn time as it’s getting a bit too warm for the fermentation.  However, my hops have done really well, so a post of piccys is well deserved!

The East Kent Goldings have taken over the western wall.

The EKGs have gone crackers and produced a lot more hops than last year.  Twining the bines around the horizontal wires got rather tedious.  I think I’ll install vertical supports in the Spring.

Cascades making for the house!

The cascades have put on less growth then the EKG’s, but should still produce a bumper crop.  Hopefully I’ll have time to use them in the Autumn!
