I ordered some Willamette Hops from a brand-new homebrew supply
shop that opened in Manhattan [Yea!!! Now Manhattan has TWO (yes, 2)
shops! ]. I used the hops today when making Rocky Raccoon's Honey
Lager (more or less, from TCJOHB). The hops were from a distributor
called Wines, Inc. The hops appeared to be in detiorated condition
(leaves not attached to cones, lots of loose yellow powder I'm
interpreting as lupulin) and there was foreign material present
(darker green leaves and stems). The foreign material appeared
homogeneous as I watched it toil and boil in my wort.

My question is:

Is this foreign material hops vine and leaf as I suspect, was it
harmful to my beer and has anyone had this experience?

Thanks,
Dan Strahs
