It turns out hops love the fish hydrolysate - so much that they're turning a deeper shade of green practically before our eyes.
Ryan let the fish fertilizer ferment and then put on his mix master hat, combining molasses, fish from our friends at Lake Superior Fish Company, water, and lactobacillus.
He applied the mixture to the hops on Wednesday and swore that they blushed with appreciation, turning a deeper shade of green by Friday.
The hops weren't the only ones loving the fish hydrolysate- our dog thought he smelled awesome after rolling in the mixture. He didn't.
