2018 RHIZOMES SHIP MARCH/APRIL 2018Brock's Homebrew has selected four hop varieties known to grow well in Florida and made them available to you. Only a limited number of each variety are available so be sure to order early to guarantee availability. Florida hops should be planted in mid March to April.
Released in 1976, Willamette descended from a seedling of the English Fuggle variety. It is currently the most widely grown hop in the US. Even though it has a vigorous growth habit it can still be a very manageable hop variety. The round cone structure is small to medium size and has a fairly pale completion. The Willamette is a good variety for pick-ability, drying and baling. It also has a moderate amount of lupulin that is golden yellow in color. A quality aroma hop is the general perception of the Willamette.
