HOP DROP
Sat 21st September 2019
1200 -21:30
Nomadic Beers
Unit 11, 15 Sheepscar Street, LS7 1AD

Tips for picking:
Cut the strings bottom first and lay out on a table to dry a bit
Wear long sleeves and gloves if possible
Check for bugs and give all the cones a good shake before bagging up
Make sure they are dry as possible
If you need to pick early please bag and refrigerate -freeze for longer storage get all the air out
Fresh hops need to be used within 24-48 hours so don’t pick too early.

If you are bogged down just bring the hops on the binds on the Hop Drop day and we can all pitch in and pick the cones. I’ll have a table set up for picking.

Do get in touch if you have any questions.

Hope to see you all there – New members welcome to join in

I want to apologise for being a bit quiet over the past 6 months. No excuse really.

How are your hops, Growers? Early spring 2019

3rd Year for this plant 2019. This plant was grown directly into its current location from 2017. (30/03/19)
3rd year for this plant 2019. First year was in a large pot 2017 , then planted into current location in the ground 2018, same coffee mug for size (30/03/19)

These are my two, 3 year old Cascade hop plants. One started its first year in a pot and is a bit behind the other plant which has been in the ground for three years.

If you are a new member and have first year plants, dont worry. Keep an eye out for the red shoots. These plants take off soon.

If any members have failed plants and want to try again. I have some Cascade plants started in pots for purchase. Get in touch – leedshops@gmail.com.

See you all soon, Sharon

Winter Meet up @ Kirkstall Brewery Saturday, 23 February 2019

A joint social with Leeds & Calderdale Camra Branches at Kirkstall Brewery on 100 Kirkstall Road, Leeds.

Meet at the Brewery 12:30pm for a tour of the kit and perhaps a quick pint. From here its on to the Cardigan Arms around 3:00ish, where there will be a rare chance to tour the Victorian Tower Brewery.  From here it is onto the Kirkstall Bridge Inn.

Feel free to join in the visits to the other two pubs. The Cardigan Arms will be showing the 6 Nations Rugby matches upstairs.

You don’t need to book, attendance is free, please wear stout(ish) footwear if you are interested in looking round the breweries. This promises to be a grand day.

Buses run approx. every 10-20mins along Kirkstall Road in each direction, so return transport should be no issue.
