Just curious as to what they charged you for the oil analysis as I've got some seedlings that have made it through the first couple years of hurdles and am thinking that they're worth spending a few bucks to see what's actually inside now?

It wasn't cheap. If I recall correctly, I think that I paid $85.00 for the "Hop Profile Package."  However, that was an AHA member special offer.   The "Volatile Oil Profile" test by itself is $80.00.

I plant my hops in half wine barrels and have coir yarn stretching to the top eves of our brewery/man cave.  The little purple sprouts have already started.  But yesterday, the wife and dumped them all out, trimmed the crowns, put them back in some good new (conditioned) soil. 

If anyone is in the Port Angeles Wa area, I've got Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Fuggle rhizomes free for the taking.....

You bet, just PM me.  But please give me instruction on how to pack.  I figure some wet newspaper, and an unsealed gallon ziplock. 

And of course I make no warranty as to viability.

Neighbors probably think I'm insane  ::)  Just finished snowblowing around my hop trellis. I don't want them sprouting too early.
 About 7 weeks left to go...............

Our very unusual late winter snow knocked out a few shoots on some of my plants but half are already growing voraciously with several shoots inches out of the ground.
