    Hey Simon:

    I was wondering, could hops be used to create ethanol as well as corn? Hops grow on vines up huge poles that are strung together over acres of land. Wouldn’t the yield be higher than that of corn fields?. There wouldn’t be the waste or the hassle in harvesting. Love your blig, wish more people realized how important this is. I am a teacher and would love some input on how to include these topics in my 7th grade Language Arts class.
