Growing hops is relatively easy if plants are grown in soil rich in organic matter and provided with sufficient vertical space for vine extension. Hops are a vigorous growing vine that requires a long growing season and full sun. Hops are propagated from an underground stem planted in the spring after the danger of frost has past. The part of the plant that is used to brew beer is the cone, from the female plant. By purchasing and planting female plants, large seedless cones are produced. Cones are harvested in late August to early September and are ready for use once they are dried and become brittle and papery.<br/><br/>Varieties<br/><br/>When choosing hops plant it is important to select the right variety and purchase female plants. Selection depends on where you live and whether you want bittering or aroma varieties. American varieties like Galena, Mt. Hood, and Cascade grow best in Utah; European varieties don&rsquo;t have the flavor or aroma when they are grown in the United States.<br/><br/>of a garage, up a chimney, or on a tall, long fence. Hops require full sun (12 hours), good air circulation, and well drained soil for high productivity.<br/><br/>Soil and Soil Preparation: Soil drainage is important, so a loose loam to a sandy loam (pH 6-7.5) is best. Add 3-6 inches of well composted organic matter and 2-4 tablespoons of all purpose fertilizer per plant to improve the fertility of the soil. Work the compost and fertilizer into the soil to a depth of 6-8 inches.<br/><br/>Planting: Plant no later than mid-April in warm areas and mid-May in cooler areas of Utah. Dig a narrow trench 12 inches deep and slightly longer then the rhizome. Plant one rhizome per hill with the buds pointed up and cover with 1 inch of loose soil. Space the rhizomes 3-4 foot apart and mulch the soil heavily. Mulch will aid in weed control and help conserve soil moisture.<br/><br/>Fertilization: Amend the soil with additional composted fertilizer each spring and side dress with some additional nitrogen at 1&frasl;2 tablespoon (21-0-0) per plant in June.<br/><br/>Growth and Training: From each rhizome, several shoots will emerge. When the vines are about 1 foot long, choose the 2-3 most vigorous shoots to grow and remove all remaining shoots. As the shoots elongate, train them onto the support structure by winding them in a clock wise direction, which follows their natural growth habit. Space out the vines as you train them to improve air circulation, light penetration, and help<br/><br/>Hops in the Garden<br/><br/>Clark Owen and Dan Drost<br/><br/>Bittering Types<br/><br/>Aroma Types<br/><br/>Galena - most popular bittering hop (acid content of 11-13%)<br/><br/>Mt. Hood - medium vigor, improved yields (acid content of 3-4.5%)<br/><br/>Nugget - stores well, late to mature (acid content of 11- 113%)<br/><br/>Tettnanger - early to mature (acid content of 4-5.5%)<br/><br/>Cascade - early to mature, floral and spicy aroma (acid content of 5-7%)<br/><br/>How to Grow<br/><br/>Where to Grow: Plant hops where there is<br/><br/>space to grow the 20-30 foot long vine. Often a trellis is built to support the plant.
