Homegrown Hop Harvest 2012


I planted two Cascade and Chinook rhizomes in early June this year, and they have grown surprisingly well during the summer. I wasn’t expecting any harvest the first year, but to my great surprise, both produced a small amount of hop flowers and cones. I harvested the cones today and spread them out on the heated floor to dry. The wet weight of the cones was 48 grams, so not that much, but still better than nothing, which I had expected. Will probably use these to aroma hop a small batch of Pale Ale.
