Subject: Harvesting Hops
Date: 1989-08-14 17:29:12 GMT
I have a few questions for the Hops growers. I just recently harvested my
hops that I planted two years ago (I didn't get any hops the first year).
The information that came with the hops (from Marysville Oast) said to
build a Hops Oast and dry with warm air blown through a bed of hops before
freezing them. I have also read that they can just be air dried in the
shade for sereral hours. Has anybody tried these methods?
Also, I only got about 2 oz.s of hops from one plant (Willamette). This
seems like it's very low. Is this because its only the second year? How
many plants would I need for a years supply in the freezer?
Any information would be appreciated.
