Hops can be used to make different types of beers and ales with the Cooking skill. Hop seeds are planted in a hops patch by using 4 hop seeds (only 3 Jute seeds) on the patch with a seed dibber in the player's inventory. Hops need to be watered during its growing cycle. Harvesting yields between 3 and 35 (48 with Ultracompost) hops and is done with a spade in the player's inventory. After a hops patch has been harvested, it will become cleared which will require the patch to be re-planted. Hops on average give less experience in planting and harvesting than allotments; however, they are not nearly as susceptible to disease as allotments. Hops patch do not a have a compost bin nearby but do have a Tool leprechaun.
