A new plant that is acquired through using the Agriculture system in IC, it is placed in an Empty Booze Barrel as one of the ingredients to make beer. They are a tier five plant (tiers range from 1-8) that looks like wheat except it has a greenish tinge. It can only be obtained through cross breeding.
It needs a light level of at least 8 to grow and grows very slowly, sometimes taking hours but it all depends on its growth stats. This includes the cross breeding as well as the growth.
When harvested with a right click they yield hop items which appear as a group of three green pods.
It's all really down to luck wether you breed hops. There have been reports of just using two sugarcane but this would be a very low chance if it were true.
Some good combinations include:
- Nether wart + Stickreed
- Stickreed + Stickreed
- Nether Wart + Nether Wart
You will need Stone Mug to put your beer in
NOTE: You can't put beer in bottles or buckets it has to be a stone mug.
Every bored of just drinking water for your own amusement?
Never fear! Hops will lighten up your life! If brewed properly, you can make delicious drinks that give you super powers!
(Warning if brewed incorrectly they may become a sludgy black stuff that will kill you instantly.)
