Postby bredmakr » Wed Sep 11, 2002 4:55 am

does anyone know a good reference that contains something like a hops family tree? there are so many different varieties I have a hard time figuring out what is what.
thanks in advance,

If I remember correctly, the Steven Snyder Homebrewers' Bible has a good description of characteristics of a number of varieties, including pedigree. I'll look to make sure when I get home, but I think that's the book I recently saw that info in.

Now it's time to drink.
