Growing hops at home is a great way to get a better understanding of your homebrewing ingredients, and it's always fun to get more hands-on when you're making your own beer. Hops have beautiful wide, flat leaves and grow easily up a lattice or a string from the ground connected high on a fence or a wall. For people who want to use their home-grown hops in their homebrew, the string method is preferred since it makes harvesting easier. For people looking for a decorative, aromatic vine, a lattice works well.
