Growing my own hops this year. Experiences? I'll update this like a semi-blog.

Their vines though, not sure how that would work indoors.

I have Liberty growing that are already about 7 feet tall growing up the twine.  This is my 4th year, I think.

If tethered to a building, will hops grow and attach like ivy? 

both mine have sprouted and are being aided by a tomato cage.  I'll probably regret this later when I have to convince them to go up the side of my garage.

I'm really considering trying to grow some hops this year, and i've got a few questions...

* Do certain types grow better in certain climates than others?
* What is the length of time it takes for them to grow?
* What kind of care do they need other than constant watering?
Any recomnendations as to what to grow would be great.  I would like to brew a pilsner and a pale ale or ipa.
