My future stepson is growing hops this coming season here in WA state. I'm a chemist and am thinking of doing the hop analysis for him. I'd like to poll you all and see if there is much interest in having your homegrown hops analyzed. Talked to two local brewing suppliers and they seemed to think that there is growing interest among their home growers in knowing what the IBU's are in their hops. If this seems to be true (interest is increasing), then I'll probably make the investment and get my own instrument for the analysis. Please let me know what you folk think. Thanks in advance.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
I've been considering growing hops myself (in Madison, WI) and depending on how successful I am with that, I'd potentially be interested in having an analysis done.
