I Got A Bussiness Idea.
« on: February 09, 2008, 09:41:58 AM »

I was skimming the ol' AM dial on the way home yesterday, I catch this one dude talking about hops.

'Perntly there has been a decent shortage over the last couple of years, and that has driven the price way up.   Micro brewers are still going strong, and there are a lot of serious home brewers.

This *feces* going for upwards of 60 cents an ounce or 8 dollars and higher a pound.

I have no idea what geef is going for, but this seems pretty lucrative, and more legal.

I've been re-surfing all morning, and run across a lot of good info.   Sure as *feces*, on Ebay, some varieties are going for over 20 bones a pound.  Shocked

Minnesota is listed as a suitable climate for growing, and one of the local micro joints has purchased 2.5 acres, and are going to start growing next year.

This may just be the ticket.  Cheers

 Thumbs Up

So how many pounds of hops can be grown per acre?

I may have to go ask the Google. It appears with the weather we're having it will be an "inside" day around here anyway.

Not sure.  I will have to El Goog that as well.

Just eyeballing it, not much.  e.g.  The picture of a 1 pound bag of buds on Ebay, over a picture of 1 mature plant looks to be maybe 5 bags per plant.
Starter plants average about 5 bucks.

Got it.  I was off a bit.  Average is a little over 2 pounds per plant.

If the microbrewers don't want to buy your *feces*, can you at least smoke it?

Hops are related to cannabis.

It would take a couple of years for the plants to mature enough to give you a crop.  Due the high prices, more acreage probably will be planted this year, so by the time you're ready to sell, the price will have dropped.
