Columbia hops
« on: October 18, 2011, 09:11:29 AM »
I was sent a sample of Columbia hops in an order I received recently.  I know nothing about them.  Can anybody fill me in?

Thanks, Ron!  I hadn't seen that.  Glad to know that they're Fuggle like before I used them!

Yeah, an awfully big sister :)  But there are plenty of other rivers they could have used.
