Subject: Brewing with fresh hops...

I'll be picking fresh hops in about a month or so and am wondering if anyone
knows a rule of thumb in terms of how many oz(s) of fresh hops is equivalent to
1 oz of hop plugs/leafs/pellets. I'm assuming the weight of fresh hops cones
is greater than what you buy at the homebrew store since there is more water
(not as dried out.)

Is this a true assumption or can I just measure out my standard oz(s) is not
get too bitter of a beer?

No, this isn't a silly question as an attempt to be the 100th entry for the
OK, OK, so it is. just send the MALTMILL over to me now.
