Foggy Noggin Fresh Hop Diablo de Sol - Batch #1
The end of summer marks hop harvest season and fresh hop beers. One of our hoppier beers is Diablo del Sol (English Pale) and the perfect candidate to do a fresh hop version.
We planted 2 hop rhizomes (Centennial and Fuggle, Spring 2010). Our first year beared no hops. Above is what our early hop shoots looked like in May 2011.
