2014 import hops release?
« on: February 06, 2015, 08:57:48 PM »
Does anyone know possibly when either Hops direct or YVH will release there UK and German/Hallertau region hops? i guess i could buy last years but was just wonder when they may be released or harvested. Hops direct has some but as always not all i want to order. hate to have to place 2 separate orders

Send an email to Jeff at YVH. He is quite responsive.

I have heard the European crop was not a good one. If they don't have a variety now, you will have to contact to see if they have it coming over.

Much of Europe was cold and wet early, giving low bine growth. Then it turned very hot an dry, so not as much cone growth.

Watching F1 races all summer supports this.
