While I haven't started brewing yet, I accepted a hops plant from a friend
of mine to see how it would grow on my farm. I planted it in a partially
shaded area along a creek and it is growing like crazy. This is it third
year. Last year it produced a few hops. The plant was described as a
"common hops." Now for a few questions:

1. what is common hops?

2. can common hops be used for brewing or other purposes?

3. the plant has been getting a white mold on some of its
leaves, is this caused by the damp, shaded location?

4. do I need to be concerned about the mold? If so, can
it be treated?

Thanks for any information you care to share.
