---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 15 Sep 2010 07:54:38 -0700 From: Chuck Petersen <hopman at opusnet.com> Subject: Male Hop Flowers? I noticed a few of the these little (about BB size) flowers on my Chinook hops last year but noticed them on my Cascades this year. They may have been around on both but I just didn't see them. Has anyone else seen this? These are on female hop plants and I am getting normal female hop cones on the rest of the plant. Everything I have found on the internet indicates that the male flower develops in early June and the female a bit later. I don't see any evidence of any cones going to seed so I expect it is just an anomaly but was wondering if anyone else has noticed this or has additional info that may explain what is going on. I haven't seen anything on any other varieties I grow just the Chinook and Cascade. Chuck Petersen Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 15 Sep 2010 14:41:36 -0400 From: Jeff Walls <jwalls110 at verizon.net> Subject: Brewing Science Classes Anybody familiar with any type of listing for brewing science classes? I don't mean the LHBS stuff, I mean more like what Siebels or UC Davis does, for those of us that have jobs and can't take the time to do the weeks and semesters long full time stuff. I have seen the MBAA stuff in Wisconsin, and Siebels and UC Davis, but I am in PA, and am searchng for something I can do either on a night class deal or online (I prefer the classes, I am on of those that learn better that way). I know this is a long shot, but you never know unless you ask!
