Speaker: Cynthia Lindner
Topic: Taming the Pernicious Weed, Growing Hops at Home
Cynthia Lindner, an award winning home-brewer, has been growing six different cultivars of hops in her backyard for the past five years. She’ll share her knowledge about the different ways hops can be maintained for the home gardener including how to plant, harvest and prepare them for storage. An explanation with some historical context of how hops are used in beer brewing for preservation, adding aroma, flavor, and bitterness to balance the sweet malt flavors of finished beer will also be presented. Join in for this fun and informative talk and be ready to grow your own hops next spring!
